Becky Lippert and Bobby Garrett devised a plan to rip off young soldiers and sailors of their life savings. The plan included embezzling life insurance premiums from the Federal Government. The plan looked good on paper. It worked even better in practice. No one was supposed to get hurt. But when theft turns to murder the military brass must act fast to stop the abuses. Pat and Joe McKinney are drawn into an investigation that starts near the Grand Forks Air Force Base. It quickly turns into a manhunt near military bases along the Southeastern United States. Will the McKinneys stop these vicious perpetrators or will they continue A Lifetime of Deception?
Major Francis ‘Frank’ Hartnett reviewed the order from the office of the Judge Advocate General dated February 19, 1997. He was to assemble a team of military investigative personnel. Their task was to stop a rash of fraudulent acts being committed against deployed members of the armed forces. 'Well, this should be as easy as stopping the floodwaters of the Mississippi River. I wonder what desk-jock-genius thought this up?' With his right forefinger, he pushed his reading glasses back on the bridge of his nose, then, with a sweep of his hand, brushed the bristles of his close cropped salt and pepper hair. His facial lines showed the stress of prior battles as the wrinkles in his forehead tightened. He was a veteran of several conflicts that took him to several battlefields during his career. He’d faced battlefield conditions that were, at times, unbearable. Now he sat hunched over his large, mahogany desk and read the new battle facing his fellow soldiers and sailors. This battle would take place on the domestic front. It was against an enemy that was far worse than the soldiers from countries that didn’t believe in the ideals of the United States. At least you could see those enemies coming, usually by jets or ships. More recently, the terrorists were more difficult to detect but we still had intelligence reports that told us something about those mostly religious fanatics who were out to destroy our way of life.
