During a live-fire artillery exercise at a Marine Corps base, due to an error in relaying the coordinates, shells injure seven Marines in a recon team, one of whom later dies. The accused is a lieutenant who is a son of a former commandant of the Marine Corps. Harm and Meg investigate; they encounter stonewalling, lying, withholding of evidence, and tampering with evidence. Meg, with a helping hand from the mysterious Ollie North, provides the necessary evidence to prove the truth. Written by DocRushing
