When a female cadet dies during parade and an autopsy reveals that she had sex with multiple partners the night before, West Point finds its reputation on the line, and it is up to Ry Slaight to uncover the truth

HARPERCOLL
From bestselling author Lucian Truscott comes the sequel to his classic Dress Gray -- a modern military epic that echoes the scandals that have made headlines for years -- and still do today.

In the New York Times bestseller Dress Gray, Ry Slaight was a rebellious cadet who almost destroyed West Point when he exposed and solved the murder of a gay cadet in 1969. Now, nearly three decades later, Slaight's been promoted to Lieutenant General and appointed Superintendent of the Military Academy. It's cause for congratulation -- and the occasion for a new blockbuster.

When a female cadet dies during parade, an autopsy establishes that she had sex with multiple partners the night before. Was she the victim of a gang rape? Was there a cadet orgy? Don't ask. Don't tell.

And that's just for starters. Slaight has his hands full: adultery among the senior faculty, sexual harassment, and an off-post beating involving cadets and drugs, not to mention the conservative Congressman who wants West Point closed, convinced it's a den of iniquity. And when the Commandant of Cadets aligns himself with a faction that believes the military academy should produce stone killers rather than an officer corps with a conscience, Slaight finds himself up against the same problems that bedeviled him as a cadet. But where once he almost brought West Point to its knees, now he's the only man who can put it back on its feet, as Full Dress Gray marches inexorably toward a climactic courtroom battle torn straight from today's headlines.

This time he is dealing with the complexities of women at West Point and fighting to save the Academy's honor and integrity, in a modern military thriller packed with the secrets behind today's headlines.
When a female cadet dies during parade, an autopsy established that she had sex with multiple partners the night before. Was she the victim of a gang rape or was she a willing participant in a cadet orgy? Don't ask. Don't tell.
As Superintendent, Slaight has his hands full: adultery among the senior faculty, sexual harassment, an off-post beating involving cadets, and suspicions that West Point's Honor code has been compromised. Suddenly, Slaight finds himself on the receiving end of the kind of assault he launched against West Point as a cadet. With his own daughter caught up in the web of intrigue and conspiracy surrounding the death of her female classmate, Slaight's loyalties are tested and his will is stretched to the limit.
