This book is about Robert Puller who is serving a life sentence for treason. He escapes almost miraculously from A maximum security prison and the story is about trying to bring him to justice. In a surprising turn of events John Puller, his brother, is assigned to bring the fugitive to book. John is not convinced of the fugitive's guilt and sets out to prove what he believes to be the facts. There are enough twists and turns in the story to keep it moving fast. It is very tough to keep track of who the "good Guys" are and who the "Bad Guys." All in all well-written and satisfying.
