The General's Ambition, A Master Sergeant Harper Mystery, by M. L. Doyle

If you've read the first two books in the Master Sergeant Harper series, (The Peacekeeper's Photograph and The Sapper's Plot) you already know Harper tends to get herself mired in unexpected and dangers situations. It’s not like she goes looking for trouble, but when there are lingering questions, she figures, someone has to answer them. Sometimes, that someone is staring back at her in the mirror.

In the first book, Harper meets Sergeant Major Harold Fogg, a British Special Air Service soldier who captures her attention and helps dig her out of her messes. Their relationship, because of distance and duty, has largely been put on hold. In The General’s Ambition, they are finally able to spend some time together, although it doesn’t end up quite the way they’d both hoped.

The General’s Ambition is available for preorder now in ebook format with a publication date of Nov. 1, 2014. Like the other two books, this page-turning mystery takes you into the world of life as a soldier, where duty and responsibilities trump just about anything else.

M. L. Doyle has served in the U.S. Army at home and abroad for more than two decades as both a soldier and civilian. She brings all of that experience to the page in this unique mystery series. A Minneapolis native, Mary currently lives in Baltimore, Maryland.

Here is the book’s description:
All Master Sergeant Lauren Harper has to do is make it through one final training exercise before thirty days of sun and sand with Sergeant Major Harry Fogg of the British Special Air Service. Thirty days to finally get to know each other … at last.
When a horrific crime interrupts her plans, Harper knows the delay is only temporary. There were plenty of witnesses and the case is open and shut. Besides, Harper won’t let anything spoil her time away with Harry.


Why would a highly decorated officer do what he did? What if the training accident isn’t an accident? Harper can't shake the idea that there’s more going on than anyone will admit.
