New Thriller Broken Eagle Pits Young Lawyer Against Scheming Government Agents

A Gripping Aviation/Military/Legal Tale Packed with Suspense
RALEIGH, N.C. - June 23, 2016 - PRLog -- Caromount Island Publishing announces publication of the debut novel Broken Eagle, a hard-hitting story with a military-legal theme by aviation lawyer and retired Army helicopter pilot James T. Crouse.

When Jake Baird left Army combat service, gothis law degree, and settled into his one-man law practice in the South, he intended to leave life-threatening situations behind.  But when a disheveled ex-military officer presses a folder of classified documents about a developmental aircraft, the fatally flawed Sea Eagle, into his hands, his safe and comfortable world is blown apart. With the files comes a warning, "Watch your six."  Jake soon finds his world crawling with men in dark suits and sunglasses who are willing to do anything-including murder-to recover the files and keep the deadly program going.

Jake is caught in the fight of his life-to save himself, do justice for the widow of a Marine pilot, and prevent the deaths of more service members.

Advance readers praise Broken Eagle:

James Crouse's gripping drama resonates with realistic details from his deep knowledge about the law, aviation and the military. It's a page turner in the mode of Scott Turow and John Grisham.
-Sara Just, Executive Producer, PBS NewsHour and Senior Vice President WETA, formerly ABC News Nightline producer

Former helicopter pilot James T. Crouse writes about a world he knows well, and takes us on a tense read that will leave any citizen wondering about the intersection between military security and the lure of billions in taxpayer money, and shows his blow-torch conscience when it comes to the national interest of the United States.
-William E. Jackson, Jr., Huffington Post contributor, former government/politics professor at Davidson College, and former foreign and defense policy scholar at the Brookings Institution
