The FOURTH RULE

THE FOG OF WAR HIDES MANY SECRETS, BUT RARELY A GOOD ONE.
The Fourth Rule tells the story of one secret born when a Green Beret returns from Vietnam and disappears. Two decades later, the CIA approaches the soldier’s younger brother, Matthew Grant, to uncover what happened. Matthew denies knowing anything, but the CIA doesn’t believe him, and thus begins an intense struggle between the CIA, hell-bent on protecting its own and continuing its illicit clandestine activities, and a not-so-ordinary citizen, who has to risk it all to protect his secret and right a terrible wrong from the past.

The Fourth Rule is a fast–paced, literary adrenalin rush! It’s the story of two brothers and the secrets uncovered in Vietnam and hidden for 22 years, culminating in a high-stakes gamble where the prize is a normal life for one brother … and peace for the other. Douglass Seaver creates memorable characters and an unforgettable story.”

The Fourth Rule begins with as well-written a Chapter 1 as you’ll find – and rarely lets up. Seaver is an excellent story teller. Just when you think you have The Fourth Rule figured out, he throws the reader a curve. Read this one!” –
