Detained (#01 in Navy Jag Series)

Don Brown
Also Available In

A man and his son dreamed of America's freedom, but the dream became a nightmare when they ended up at Guantánamo Bay.

Hasan Makari and his son, Najib, both Lebanese nationals, have dreamed of the day they would experience the shining freedom of America. But when they arrive in the US, they are arrested, accused of terrorism, and incarcerated at the Guantánamo Bay Prison Camp in Cuba, all on false charges. Suddenly, they face the nightmare of death by execution.

Their only hope is Navy JAG Officer Matt Davis, who has been assigned to the case of his life-to defend the Makaris in court at Guantánamo Bay. Matt believes his clients are innocent, but he faces monumental opposition-not only from powerful federal prosecutors with a huge agenda and an unlimited budget, but also from the woman he loves who, as a fellow JAG officer, has been ordered onto the prosecution team to convict the Makaris.

As the drama unfolds in Cuba, Emily Gardner, a top-ranking TSA lawyer, has just received a larger-than-life nomination as General Counsel for the Department of Homeland Security. While preparing for confirmation by the US Senate, she discovers a shocking scheme that will turn her life upside down. Can Emily expose the truth in time to save the lives of those being accused-and escape with her own life? Somewhere between the war-torn plains of Northern Lebanon and the secret torture chamber of Guantánamo Bay lie the keys to justice.

Thought provoking
5 stars By Jan, Oct 13 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Detained" written by Don Brown. It was very exciting and made me wonder if the mistaken arrest and treatment of an innocent person happens very often by law enforcement. The more I read and thought about it the more I came to the conclusion "I bet this does happen". So I think the author did an excellent job of making the events very real. I won't tell you more about the plot as I don't like to spoil it for others reading the book. I also lent it to my friend who reads a lot of books and she really liked it too. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting an exciting, interesting read.
