Overview

Paul Brenner is a member of the Army's elite undercover investigative unit, with the authority to arrest any military person anywhere in the world. He has always wondered just how far he could push his power. He is about to find out. Captain Ann Campbell is the daughter of General "Fighting Joe" Campbell. She is a West Point graduate, beautiful, bright, and the pride of Fort Hadley. Her raped and murdered body is found on the firing range, naked and spread-eagled, her hands and feet bound with tent rope - but there is no sign of a struggle. All of Brenner's instincts tell him to avoid the case. Yet Brenner's natural curiosity is aroused. He takes the case. As if that decision weren't reckless enough, he finds himself teamed with rape specialist Cynthia Sunhill, a woman with whom Brenner once had a tempestuous, ultimately doomed affair and with whom the temperamental sparks still flare. Together, they will discover the truth about the brass above them: that beneath the neatly pressed uniforms, the military codes of honor, pride, and order hide a corruption as rank as Ann Campbell's own astonishing secret life. Paul and Cynthia learn that any number of people were sexually, emotionally, and dangerously involved with the Army's "golden girl," and any one of them could have wanted her dead. Far more than a richly plotted murder mystery, Nelson DeMille's The General's Daughter is a resonant and scathing portrayal of military life, demonstrating, unforgettably, how its members are different from - and at the same time, so much like - the rest of us.

From By the Rivers of Babylon to The Gold Coast, DeMille's powerful novels have established him as one of the masters of suspense. Finally in paperback, this thriller--which outsold all DeMille's other hardcovers--tells of the bizarre life and death of a famous general's daughter.

Editorial Reviews

Newgate Callendar
The General's Daughter is bigger, more ambitious and rather pretentious....Mr. DeMille writes well enough, there is some snappy dialogue, the police work is painstakingly thorough, but none of the characters really come to life. -- New York Times
Kirkus Reviews
Immensely skilled and likable page-turner by bestseller DeMille, who returns to the military surroundings of Word of Honor (1985) and whose mastery of background, as with the Long Island rich of The Gold Coast (1990), equals his hand at characterization. One moonlit night at Port Hadley, Georgia, Captain Ann Campbell, the tomboy military brat of base commander General Joseph "Fighting Joe" Campbell, a hero of the Gulf war, is found strangled to death on the firing range—and not just strangled but spread-eagled and tied to tent stakes, naked, and possibly raped. On hand and working on another case is Warrant Officer Paul Brenner, an undercover agent of the Army's Criminal Investigation Division, who is handed the murder. Brenner is seconded in the case by a rape-investigator for CID, Cynthia Sunhill, a married woman with whom he had a failed affair the year before in Brussels. The reader accepts this unlikely event, for the sport of it, and then becomes hooked securely as Paul and Cynthia trade wry quips throughout without once slipping into false bonhomie. As it turns out, Ann Campbell, attached to Psychological Operations at Hadley, was a supremely promiscuous woman out to undermine her father. The murder suspects include about 30 officers whom she brought down to the secret sex-room in her otherwise model house. Ann's motives stemmed from a shocking crime that happened ten years earlier, when she was a West Point cadet—an event that gave her a Nietzschean fixation on the abyss into which Paul and Cynthia must follow her: "There is a sort of spirit world that coexists with the world of empirical observation, and you have to get in touch with that worldthrough the detective's equivalent of the s‚ance." What follows is a deductive novel of unwavering excellence. A knockout. DeMille's done it again. (Literary Guild Dual Selection for January)

    A real page turner

    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.

    Very entertaining read!

    I am a big fan of Nelson DeMille novels and also of the main character in this book, John Corey. Very easy and entertaining read...it 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 Country...it'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.

    Nelson DeMille is a must read author

    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.

    Demille at his very best!

    I have read every Nelson Demille book and this certainly takes the prize as his best. Packed to the rim with suspense, playfulness, and developed characters, The General's Daughter is an addictive crowd pleaser all the way. Good luck trying to put it down!

    Great book!

    I enjoyed this book and glad I read it before I saw the movie. Usually the books are better than the movies because some things get lost in translation. This book was well written and kept me on my toes. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a good mystery/thriller.

    Great Book

    I enjoyed it alot but i think i may have liked it more if i hadnt seen the movie first.. I regret seeing the movie. Any one who has seen the movie should disregard it and read the book instead. It has so much more detail, captivating story line, and u wont regret reading it.

    Intriguing Thriller

    Great book with much attention to detail. This is a book that will keep your interest and add some insight into the male chauvenistic world of the military and it's warped since of honor!

    I don't read, but I read this book in a week.

    This was a riviting book. I have read few books, cover to cover, but I read this one and looked for more pages when it was done. I saw the movie after I read the book, and I shouldn't have. The book was fantastic and I, after 2 years, can't get it or the characters out of my head. It made me want to read more books. I recommend this book, even if you have seen the movie, forget what you saw and give the book a chance, you won't be sorry!!

    INTENSE

    This book is a fast-paced, page-turner. Lots of twists and turns. The story stays with you long after you have finsished reading it--much better than the film.
