Here is an intriguing and sophisticated murder mystery of 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.

It's Nelson DeMille at his best - exciting, suspenseful and highly provocative.

This is old school, well written, no short for the sake of short chapters. Good character development, good plot, written in 1992 but talks about DNA 2 years prior to OJ. A truly sarcastic writing style which makes the lead characters seem genuine. De Mille wears big boy pants in dealing with some unpleasant material. I really enjoyed this book and will try more by this author.

The books is interesting but despite the subject matter and plot, I found the conclusions of the main characters a bit hard to believe, too much out of thin air. I was also disappointed by the anticlimatic ending. However, it's not a bad book
