Gregg Thompson doesn't plan on going to war, but that quickly changes when he's drafted and sent to Vietnam.The young private finds that he's a fine soldier, but the military values him even more for his strategic thinking and smarts. He's promoted to captain and becomes a lawyer, defending the innocent and prosecuting war criminals.Thompson becomes a critical player in cases that reflect the social issues and problems affecting not only the military but the entire country including desertion, rape, armed robbery, conscientious objectors and much more.Justice is not always easy to interpret. When two soldiers get in a fight and an onlooker kills one of the fighters, it's up to Thompson to get a murder conviction.Other tough cases include a war hero who goes AWOL in Vietnam, a decorated major accused of selling high-ticket items on the black market and a soldier who disobeys an order that doesn't make much sense in the context of jungle warfare.Victories are not always won on the field of battle. Follow a master lawyer as he seeks justice in Boots and the Law, a portrait of American life during Vietnam.

In this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller from Harlan Coben, a dead man's secrets fall into the hands of a vigilante antihero—drawing him down a dangerous road. Over twenty years ago, the heiress Patricia Lockwood was abducted during a robbery of her family's estate, then locked inside an isolated cabin for months. Patricia escaped, but so did her captors — and the items stolen from her family were never recovered. Until now. On the Upper West Side, a recluse is found murdered in his penthouse apartment, alongside two objects of note: a stolen Vermeer painting and a leather suitcase bearing the initials WHL3. For the first time in years, the authorities have a lead — not only on Patricia's kidnapping, but also on another FBI cold case — with the suitcase and painting both pointing them toward one man. Windsor Horne Lockwood III — or Win, as his few friends call him — doesn't know how his suitcase and his family's stolen painting ended up with a dead man. But his interest is piqued, especially when the FBI tells him that the man who kidnapped his cousin was also behind an act of domestic terrorism — and that the conspirators may still be at large. The two cases have baffled the FBI for decades, but Win has three things the FBI doesn't: a personal connection to the case; an ungodly fortune; and his own unique brand of justice.
