Secret Sanction?

Since I don’t have anything new to share, I thought I would discuss something I discovered a while ago…

The name Brian Haig may sound a little familiar because he is the son of former Secretary of State Alexander Haig. Brian also happens to be one of my favorite authors. The hero of all of Haig’s books is named Sean Drummand, an Army lawyer with a sense of humor and attitude leaning towards the insubordinate smart-ass side of life.

Anyway, Haig has written five books so far starring Sean Drummand, and was scheduled to publish a sixth book titled Man in the Middle due February 2006. And then I received the following e-mail from Amazon…

Hello from

We are sorry to report that the release of the following item has been cancelled:

Brian Haig “Man in the Middle”

Though we had expected to be able to send this item to you, we’ve since found that it will not be released after all. Please accept our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience we have caused you.

We have cancelled this item from your order.

WTF!?! I’ve ordered tons of stuff online, and occasionally something may be delayed, but I’ve never had anything just flat-out cancelled like that before. What’s strange is that I can’t find any information on why the book was cancelled. All references to it have been deleted from the major online booksellers. I’m hoping that the book has been postponed and will eventually show up. We’ll see…
