When something distracts Secret Service agent Sean King for a split second, it costs him his career - and presidential candidate Clyde Ritter his life. What stole his attention? Why was Ritter shot? Where were the other detail leaders? Eight years later, Michelle Maxwell is on the fast track through the ranks of the Secret Service when her career receives a lethal blow: presidential candidate John Bruno is abducted from a funeral home while under her protection. The similarity between the two cases drives Michelle to re-open investigations into the Ritter fiasco and join forces with attractive ex-agent King. The pair are determined to get to the bottom of what happened in those critical moments. Meanwhile, high-ranking members of the legal system and key witnesses from both cases are going missing. King is losing friends, colleagues, and clients fast, and his ex-lover, Joan Dillinger, a hard-biting, widely respected agent, is playing curious games. She wants Sean back and resents his growing relationship with Michelle, but she also owes him for something. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Damian Lewis.

Born in a Pennsylvania steel town in 1903, Homer L. Litzenberg Jr. began his long and distinguished military career as a private in the Pennsylvania National Guard. After less than two years of service, Litzenberg left the National Guard and enlisted in the US Marine Corps. Demonstrating his great abilities and leadership potential while serving in stateside posts and in combat in Haiti, Litzenberg was able to earn a commission as a second lieutenant through the Officer Candidate School after only two years of service as a Marine. As a staff officer and planning officer, Homer Litzenberg served at various times at the highest levels of the US Armed Forces command structure. He worked with and for such notable military leaders as Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King, General of the Armies George C. Marshall, General George S. Patton Jr., and Commandant of the Marine Corps General Clifton B. Cates. In combat in Haiti and Nicaragua in the 1920s, and the Marshall and Marianas Islands during World War Two, Homer Litzenberg proved himself to be a courageous and skillful leader of Marines. He was one of the very few Marines to participate in amphibious assaults in both the North Africa / European Theater and the Pacific Theater. He faced the ultimate test as a combat leader during the Korean War when he led the 7th Marine Regiment in the 1st Marine Division’s breakout from the Chosin Reservoir despite the horrendous cold and overwhelming numbers of Communist Chinese forces. For his leadership, he was awarded the Navy Cross, second only to the Medal of Honor in the hierarchy of American military/naval decorations. While many Marine officers and even several prominent generals, including Lieutenant General Lewis “Chesty” Puller, General Graves B. Erskine, and Commandant of the Marine Corps General Carl Mundy, have begun their careers as enlisted Marines, very, very few earned their commissions without having earned college degrees or having even attended college bef 1.

A selection of letters written home by a private soldier who served in Iraq, Palestine and other parts of the Middle East during the Second World War. Anthony Rawson was born in October 1919 and grew up in the family home in Watford. When war broke out in 1939 he was working as a gas fitter for the Watford and St. Albans Gas Company.
