From the Publisher
Annotation Richard North Patterson crafts a suspenseful military-legal thriller with the interpersonal knottiness of a soap opera plot with IN THE NAME OF HONOR. Two generations of families, the McCarrans and the Gallaghers, have had deep connections. The fathers met as students at West Point, and the children, Brian McCarran and Kate Gallagher, have been lifelong friends. Brian returns from a difficult tour in Iraq, in which he served under Kate's husband Joe D'Abruzzo. Both Brian and Joe seem different upon their return: Brian is clearly scarred by experiences that he keeps to himself and Joe seems lost in his own thoughts, distant and withdrawn. And then Brian kills Joe in what he claims is self-defense. But the truth is much more slippery because everyone is harboring secrets and the effects of wartime trauma run deep on the soldier's souls.
Editors Note Anthony McCarran, one of the army’s most distinguished generals, was devastated by the loss of his longtime friend Jack Gallagher, who was killed in Vietnam. For years, the McCarran and Gallagher families have remained close, watching a new generation of soldiers face combat. Today, the general’s son Lt. Brian McCarran is back from Iraq. Traumatized by the experience, there’s only one person Brian wishes to confide in: Kate Gallagher. As the daughter of a fallen soldier, Kate understands the pain of war. But as the wife of Brian’s commanding officer, the volatile and shell-shocked Capt. Joe D’Abruzzo, there’s only so much Kate can do to offer comfort—and only so many secrets Brian can share…Tragedy strikes when Brian shoots and kills D’Abruzzo on their army post in Virginia after a bitter confrontation. Now, in a high-profile court-martial, Brian must face old demons and new enemies as he fights to prove his innocence with the help of Paul Terry, one of the army’s most accomplished lawyers; Terry’s co-counsel, who happens to be Brian’s sister, Meghan; and Kate’s unwavering support. But before the case is over, Brian will learn that families, like war, can break the sturdiest of souls—and hardest of hearts.
