The Major's Wife

Diana King is a psychiatric doctor, working closely with military families. Her marriage to a major in the US Army may not seem anything out of the normal except that her husband is an African American man. She is a white woman from the rural south. Her father makes it very clear that he is not supportive of the relationship. The drama explodes when King and family are reassigned to Fort Rucker, Alabama, where Diana's family resides as original settlers. King is called up for duties in Iraq, serving couple stints in the Gulf War. While he is away, his wife continues her psychiatric care and post-combat treatment counseling for soldiers returning with issues from serving in the war.

She meets her former lover from high school. Now a sergeant with the post-combat syndrome (PTSD), he tries to get extra counseling sessions between the sheets. Both are married, and an extramarital affair occurs between them. After King's heroic return to Fort Rucker, he is ambushed and is senselessly killed.

In a town of old bigotry, this murder awakens racial tension. The local police, led by Detective Sharkey, try to solve intriguing murder. Diana and her father are prime suspects, King's father, a military man himself, relies on an old friend to help solve the mystery of his son's demise.

Provocative and riveting The Major's Wife reveals some real experiences directly from the combat zone. The author, Anthony Whyte, relies on his military background to capture the arduous, fascinating, exciting grind of a soldier's life.

From start to an inevitable sensational dramatic finish, The Major's Wife is a compelling read.
