Review: THE NIGHT CREW by Brian Haig Another Best of 2015! I was captivated by the book's description, and riveted from the first page. Author Brian Haig giftedly peels back the layers of mystery and of character, of present behavior and years-past history, in the U.S. and in the Middle East. Additionally, we delve deep into character psychology, before a backdrop of a vicious, horrible, episode in history. Anyone familiar with the atrocities at Abu Ghraib will have immediate background for this novel, yet author Haig presents on both a personal-psychological level and a vast, global, ethical level. Civil War General Sherman advised, "War is he**," and Lord Acton reminded us, "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Both dicta are firmly in play in this thrilling novel.
