No place on earth is more dangerous than Baghdad, especially if you're Judge Isha Hami. The murder of a former Iraqi Intelligence Officer and the subsequent arrest of his killers threaten to unravel fragile alliances and plunge Iraq into civil war. Appointed Iraq's first female Judge, Hami is randomly assigned to hear the case. As the Americans fight to maintain order, Bathists, Shias and Sunnis pressure Hami to dismiss a case none of them can afford to have go to trial. Sworn to uphold the rule of law, Hami refuses. In the shadowy maelstrom of violence and shifting loyalties that is post war Baghdad, she stands alone. Only Ted Kehr's troubled Green Beret team mate, Ralph Jackson, and CIA Agent Hank Jenkins will fight to save Hami's life if, as Baghdad burns, they can reach her in time and if . . . they can save themselves first.
