Bangkok, Thailand, 1969. Young British lawyer Matt Benson has his first case. He’s a long way from home, it’s hot and he finds himself facing the might of the American military justice system in a court martial the Pentagon is determined to win.
His client is US Army veteran Sgt Al Moreau, accused of selling off military vehicles destined for troops in Vietnam. Matt has to catch up fast with US Army law. His tough client won’t make life easy. Nor will his new apartment above a seedy Go-Go Bar or a love affair with a US Army nurse who’s hiding a dangerous secret.
Al is depending on him. Matt can’t let him down. He forms a bond that’s hard to break in a case that will stay with him forever.

Based on the adventures of David Hallmark, OBE, the only English lawyer to appear in a US court martial during the Vietnam war.
