Beverly Ford lost more than just her husband when he died in Iraq from a fatal wound and faulty body armor - she also lost her faith in the government and its military. After no response to her unlawful death claim, she's taking them both to court. Successful attorney David Sloane, a former Marine, knows Beverly's case is a no-win situation, but his conscience won't let him abandon her. As he digs deeper into the investigation, Sloane confronts a law called the Feres Doctrine which prohibits a soldier's family from suing the government for his death. Contested nearly 3,000 times in the past 50 years, the Feres Doctrine has yet to be amended or overturned. Now Sloane is desperate to find a loophole. But as he examines the events that led to James Ford's death, he uncovers disturbing evidence of a powerful enemy playing a very deadly game - one that may put him and his family in dire jeopardy. Compelling characters, jaw-dropping twists, and a dangerous hunger for justice make Wrongful Death an edge-of-your-seat audio full of hot-button issues and searing courtroom drama.
