Command Sergeant Major Cleveland Spires lost his family, his career, his pride and ten years of his life while in prison for something he didn’t do. Now, he’s out and simply trying to reestablish himself when he uncovers a clue that might prove his innocence. He heads down a dark and twisting path that leads him to Bangkok, Thailand and on to Tokyo, Japan where the path suddenly widens into a road, a road leading directly to war. Coalition warfare is nothing new. In fact, the US has become masterful at building them. But what happens when the coalition isn’t one the US has built; instead it’s one whose intent is to destroy the global economy. This is a story of international intrigue, politics and American military power. The military organizations are real. The characters represent the men and women of the US Armed Forces who work every day at protecting America’s interests. In the aftermath of 9/11, Colin Powell said that despite America’s terribly sophisticated intelligence gathering ability, there is no substitute for something as simple as a human being on the ground, who overhears something. After reading A Path to Innocence, A Road to War, you’ll see the wisdom in Powell’s comment.
