When TJ Dunn enlisted in the US Army, she knew the risks. And not just the combat risks—six years earlier her father, an army veteran, killed himself. But TJ is tough, determined to carry her own weight as a soldier, and she subsequently earns a spot as an MP. Everything changes when her team is ambushed during a mission in Iraq. As the only survivor, TJ is left both physically and psychologically traumatized. Yet even as she struggles to come to terms with the loss of her friends, she receives another devastating blow: her fiancé, stationed in Afghanistan, has taken his own life.
Discharged from the army and back home in the States, TJ drifts from one dead-end job to another, unable to reconcile the senseless losses of the people she loved. Just when she thinks she’s reached her limit, an anonymous phone call shocks her back to life. The caller alleges that a top military official is executing soldiers and masking their deaths as suicides, all for the sake of covering up an elaborate heroin-trafficking operation. Determined to avenge her fellow soldiers, TJ vows to bring the traitor to justice, no matter the cost. Getting Dunn is a tension-filled military thriller, a captivating novel that takes a hard look at the horrors of war and the burdens borne by returning soldiers.
