The gripping murder mystery about an upstanding military officer - the base commander's daughter - who's been leading an unsavory double life.

When a professional military woman with a pristine reputation is found raped and murdered, a preliminary search turns up certain paraphernalia, and sex toys that point to a scandal of major proportions, The chief investigator is reluctant to take the case when he learns that his partner will be a woman with whom he had a tempestuous affair and an unpleasant parting. But duty calls and intrigue begins when they learn that several top-level people may have been involved with the "golden girl" - and many have wanted her dead.

"DeMille is a master at keeping the reader hanging on to see what happens next." - Associated Press

I have read a dozen of DeMille's novels, and I must say this was the best of the lot. The action is almost non-stop, and the plot takes so many intriguing and unexpected turns that it is hard to put the book down. Being retired military, my only comment was that the flippancy of the CID investigator in dealing with senior officers, was a little hard to swallow. I'm looking forward to ordering another DeMille novel in the near future.

I am a big fan of Nelson DeMille novels and also of the main character in this book, John Corey. Very easy and entertaining keep you guessing for quite some time and John Corey is simply hilarious! Definitely recommend this book and the other one with John Corey, Up's also a great way for a non-military person to get a glimpse into some parts of what it's like to be part of this group.

Exciting, twists and turns. Main charachters could use a bit more development, but an all around good read.

Page turner that kept my interest early in the summer. Set on an Army base, it captures the culture and characters nicely. However, I kept thinking of John Travolta,,,what's up with that?

Vividly written and holds you. A great book even before John Travolta came along.

interesting story. Basically a tale of rape and the repercussions of it regardless of station. What she has to do to avenge herself in family and society's eyes.Has a few twists, but... didn't have any trouble reading it through, which is more than can be said for some titles I've had for years and STILL haven't managed to finish.

Borrowed from my father-in-law. It was so cool to find out we have the love of reading in common.

It's a pretty good book. A bit long perhaps (less psychobabble, less focus on the "issues" uncovered perhaps would have made it a little more suspenseful). Oh, and shaving off 100 or so pages of wasted time driving hither and thither and meeting characters several times when their purpose was served on the first visit.Of course, it's not intended to be an action novel, but rather a police procedural (army police, but still) so it wasn't what I had thought it was when I picked it up as a Reacher replacement.However, I did enjoy it; there is some snarky humor in it, and it's nicely rude on certain subjects, and the characters feel legitimate. The female characters even seem to be written relatively well (at least they weren't simpering idiots). I'll read the next in the series because I think Brenner is a fun character.

Demille is a fine wrier, but I found both victim and investigators too loathsome to rate the book higher.

Only recently had I begun to read Nelson DeMille's books. (Where the heck have I been???) Now, I'm addicted. I'm trying to read them all. I loved the General's Daughter, part one of the Paul Brenner series. I loved Up Country, the sequel, just as much if not more. (I had read UpCountry first which compelled me to purchase the General's Daughter and many more.) No matter which of Mr. DeMille's books I read, I am intriqued. His attention to detail is amazing without being overburdening. I learn something about the wide world or my own little galaxy. I remember things from years ago but now they are in a perspective that I didn't have before, and I laugh a lot. Mr. DeMille's timing and delivery is great. Mr. DeMille is truly an incredible author.
