Baker & Taylor
Loaned out to a prestigious law firm, JAG attorney Sean Drummond discovers that his predecessor in the loan-out program has been murdered and that the firm's largest client may be tied to an international crime ring.

Blackwell North Amer
From the moment he learns he's being loaned to a white-shoe D.C. law firm, Army attorney Sean Drummond smells trouble. His bull-headed manner and sarcastic wit are a bad fit. But how bad can it be? Worse than he ever imagined.
A plush corner office and outrageous perks can't make up for the legion of uptight, Armani-suited lawyers he must contend with. Then fellow JAG officer Lisa Morrow, his predecessor in the loan-out program, is viciously murdered - and Drummond realizes that the corridors of Cupler, Hutch, and Westin are just where he wants to be.
He starts investigating, and within days more women are found slaughtered. Pitted against the most savage criminal in D.C. history, Drummond quickly finds himself over his head helping the police and handling the firm's biggest client, a gluttonous media giant vying for a lucrative Pentagon contract. He soon senses that something is amiss with the client and its charismatic owner. Something that may be bigger - and more sinister - than anything he has encountered during his years in the military.
Plagued by dangerous corporate secrets, driven by a wily murderer who strikes with brutal abandon, and able to count on only one ally - Lisa Morrow's sister Janet, a gorgeous and shrewd Boston ADA - Drummond takes matters into his own hands. That means toes are going to get stepped on and no one is going to get in his way. Not some sadistic serial killer. Not some greedy telecom behemoth. And definitely not a group of buttoned-down stuffed shirts.

Money, money, money - the root of all evil. Money tied to ego, the root of the most sublime evil.

Excellent read. Informative, knowledgeable, entertaining, well-plotted, well-crafted. Great humour. The whole kit, quoi? On my list Brian Haig is definitely above many of the writers more often seen on the store shelves. I wonder if he speaks French, although I have a hunch.
