Experience the suspense and mystery of the latest in the best selling legal thriller series from the author critics hail as: "One of the strongest thriller writers on the scene."
This fast-paced and action packed legal and military thriller introduces us to 26-year-old Captain Ryan Bennington, in command of a company during the Iraq War and fighting a faceless enemy in the global war on terror where a split-second decision could mean the difference between killing an innocent civilian or losing an entire platoon to a suicide bomber. Ryan survives the war and comes home to conquer PTSD and chronic unemployment, only to be arrested for following the orders of his Commander to kill suspected Al-Qaeda terrorists in a small Iraqi village, who turn out, after the raid, to be civilians.
Lawyer Brent Marks takes on Ryan's defense in his court-martial trial, which will reveal the deepest, darkest secrets of the military industrial complex. In their search for a scapegoat, have the powers-that-be gone too far this time?

About the Author:
Described by critics as âone of our strongest thriller writers on the scene,â author Kenneth Eade, best known for his legal and political thrillers, practiced law for 30 years before publishing his first novel, âAn Involuntary Spy.â Eade, an up-and-coming author in the legal thriller and courtroom drama genre, has been described by critics as âOne of our strongest thriller writers on the scene and the fact that he draws his stories from the contemporary philosophical landscape is very much to his credit.â He is the author of the âBrent Marks Legal Thriller Seriesâ, the fifth installment of which, Killer.com, won best legal thriller in the 2015 Beverly Hills Book Awards, and the âInvoluntary Spy Espionage Seriesâ.
Said Eade of the comparisons, âReaders compare me in style to John Grisham and, there are some similarities, because John also likes to craft a story around real topics and we are both lawyers. However, all of my novels are rooted in reality, not fantasy. I use fictional characters and situations to express factual and conceptual issues. Some use the term âfactionâ to describe this style, and it is present in all my fictional works.â
Eade has written twelve novels, which are now in the process of being translated into six languages. He is known to keep in touch with his readers, and offers a free Kindle book to all those who sign up at his web site, www.kennetheade.com.
Excerpt from Beyond All Recognition by Kenneth Eade:
âYou get numb to it. Thatâs all I can say. Numb to death, killing. You get numb to the things that happen in war, but you can never forget them. They come back in your dreams after you finally get back home and they never leave.â
ââSPORTSâ â Itâs called the immediate action drill. Helps remind you what to do if your rifle malfunctions. Itâs drilled into your head in training. Youâre breaking that rifle down and putting it together two hundred times a day and by the time you get over there, youâre doing it like a machine on autopilot. All the war planning in the world goes out the window when the first shotâs fired in combat. That adrenaline kicks in, lights you up like a firebomb. But you remember SPORTS because it comes to you automatically, and that rifleâs the most important possession youâve got. Youâre only alive as long as itâs in your hands.â
