Sleight of Hand by Incatnito
Summary: A simple case is not what it seems...
Fandom: JAG
Awesome Woman: Sarah MacKenzie

Sleight of Hand is the first in a series about Sarah MacKenzie kicking ass and taking names. A petty officer requests her as his counsel for what seems to be a simple case of drug possession. However, there's a far more sinister reason behind his request, and Mac is drawn into a conspiracy far beyond anything she could have ever imagined.

This is an absolutely brilliant Mac using all of her skills. So many writers (even the ones on the show, it seems sometimes) forget that Mac is not just a lawyer, but a Marine. Incatnito's Mac may feel like she's over her head at times, but she knows her own abilities and that she can rely on her friends.
