Here's What Reviewers are Saying

  • “David Grogan’s Sapphire Pavilion is a page turner with twists and turns on just about every page. From a sleepy law practice in Southern Virginia to the streets and back alleys of Ho Chi Minh City to the corridors of the U.S. State Department, Grogan’s protagonist – retired Navy JAG Captain Steve Stilwell, manages to piece together a long-buried truth that threatens to destroy him and others.”
