Two Supreme Court justices are dead. Their murders are connected only in one mind and in one legal brief conceived by that mind. Brilliant, beautiful and ambitious, New Orleans legal student Darby Shaw little realises that her speculative brief will penetrate to the highest levels of power in Washington and cause shockwaves there. Shockwaves that will send hired killers chasing after her which will propel her across the country to meet the one man who is as near the truth as she is.

Excellent book, hard to put down. It does stretch the limits of credibility at times but the story and the writing easily make up for it

This is the first book of John Grisham's that I've read and I must say it was an excellently written narrative. The pacing was terrific, the characters believable, and the dialogue even a little humorous in places. I'll definitely read more by this author.

Struggled to finish this book. Felt like it lost steam as it progressed. Seemed redundant and the dialogue was poor.
