He arranges a date with his predecessor in the loan out program but before he can meet her, she is viciously murdered in the Pentagon parking lot. Her sister Janet, also an attorney, comes to town and teams up with the major to try and find Lisa's killer. While working on a case for the law firm, he gathers some information from Lisa's computer that might lead to her killer and in the process gets the army, the FBI, the CIA and several corporate and criminal attorney's very angry at him for interfering in their business.
Anyone who likes an action thriller won't want to miss reading PRIVATE SECTOR. The protagonist is unique and refreshing with a memorable sense of humor that will have the audience chuckling out loud in the middle of a very tense scene. He is not a rebel but he likes doing things his way and that always gets him in trouble with his superiors. Brian Haig has written a work that will return him to the bestseller lists.
