At night in the Persian Gulf a group of terrorists make a sneak attack on a US Naval warship and explode a weapon, killing five sailors. Upon the arrival of one of the prisoners in the USA, a Marine corporal on a guard detail turns and shoots him on live TV network coverage. Mac and Bud prosecute the corporal for first-degree murder, and Harm defends. However, an "anonymous benefactor" hires a high-priced and high-powered civilian lawyer who also was one of Mac's law professors at Duke. A super-zealous and super-conservative patriot becomes involved -- more than he had intended or expected. Harm gets back his old job, and he helps to solve the mystery. Written by DocRushing
