Battlemind Legal Thriller Examines US Torture Program in War on Trial
Battlemind: In the war for justice, there are no rules of engagement…
MIAMI, July 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Best-selling author, Michael Waddington, has launched his first novel Battlemind: A Military Legal Thriller on Amazon. The renowned criminal defense lawyer is experienced in defending military personnel around the world, including high-profile murder, corruption, and war crime cases.
When a suspected terrorist is tortured to death in a secret Afghanistan prison, a low-ranking guard becomes the military’s top suspect.
Army Judge Advocate General (JAG) Captain Max O’Donnell isn’t so sure. But, with ninety days left on his tour of duty, the last thing he needs is an unwinnable case. Yet, no matter how burned out he has become, he still believes justice is worth fighting for.
Digging deeper into the case, Max unearths a shadowy alliance between the prosecution, and a team of faceless CIA spooks, willing to crush anyone standing in their way – including Max.
With his client’s life on the line and his military career hanging in the balance, Max must wage war in the courtroom and seize victory the only way he knows how: using every dirty trick in the book.
Battlemind is the eighth publication from the best-selling author and renowned defense lawyer. His previous title ‘Kick-Ass Closings’ is a number-one Amazon best-seller.
Author, Michael Waddington, said: “The gritty and often raw content in Battlemind comes from a depth and level of experience that very few people are privy to. For over 20 years, I served as a defense lawyer in the military justice system, taking me to all corners of the globe. Representing and defending servicemen and women has provided me with a rare insight and understanding of the military legal system, some of which is unearthed in this fictional book.
“For anyone with a curiosity or interest in criminal justice, war crimes, and military protocol, it takes you on a riveting and unpredictable journey to justice.”
Battlemind is available to download on Kindle, or in paperback format from Amazon.
