What is Sapphire Pavilion? Learning the answer may prove fatal.


Until Sapphire Pavilion’s release on May 1st


David E. Grogan

I retired as a Captain from the Navy after serving over 26 years on active duty as a Navy Judge Advocate, or JAG.  A JAG is a uniformed Navy attorney like the one made famous by Tom Cruise in the 1992 movie A Few Good Men.

During my time in the Navy, I got to do things many people only dream about. I lived abroad in Japan, Cuba and Bahrain; I helped in the fight against pirates and international terrorism; I traveled to capitals around the world and met with royalty throughout the Middle East; I deployed for six months onboard the nuclear powered aircraft carrier USS ENTERPRISE and launched in planes from the ship underway; and prosecuted and defended court-martial cases.

The Siegel Dispositions

An heiress gets richer as others die, but who’s behind the killings? Ex-Navy JAG Steve Stilwell has to find out quickly, or he’s next.

The Siegel Dispositions introduces Steve Stilwell, a retired Navy-JAG officer and Williamsburg, VA, attorney. In The Siegel Dispositions, Steve draws up a last will and testament for a client, little knowing it will be linked to several murders and perhaps even his own demise. Read more here.”

“A fast-paced thriller with lots of twists and a refreshing moral center. Our hero Steve Stilwell is excellent company.”

Vaughn Sherman, author of Sasha Plotkin’s Deceit
