The General’s Daughter – Nelson DeMille

GeneralThe rape and murder of Captain Ann Campbell, West Point graduate and daughter of the base commander, is the premise of this well-plotted murder mystery.  Warrant officers Paul Brenner and Cynthia Sunhill are assigned to investigate the case — a case made more difficult by the fact that the body was found bound and naked on the firing range.  It doesn’t help either that Brenner and Sunhill once had an affair.  Then too, there are multiple suspects, people who were sexually and emotionally involved with the murder victim, as Brenner and Sunhill uncover evidence she was leading an unsavory double life. The military aspects of the book feel especially authentic as the author delves beneath the neatly pressed uniforms and honor codes to reveal all is not what it seems.
