Author: Robert M. Brown, Jr.
Longbridge, former Governor of the state of Texas has, as his most
trusted advisor, Seth Harrington. Mr. Harrington is a very
well-known and charming televangelist. He had taken the
Governor of Texas and turned him into the leader of the free world.
There is a history of political double dealing and dishonesty that
started in Texas and is now located in the East Wing of the White
As three openings suddenly appear on the Supreme Court, President Longbridge depends on his advisor to help him choose persons to fill these vacancies in time for the Spring session on the Court. This session will have an extraordinary number of cases that could literally change constitutional law. Along with this mess, a senior partner of a prestigious Wall Street law firm dies suddenly of not so natural causes. This causes some of the law partners and the police to try and frame a murder suspect. Said suspect, Mayson Corelli, is an associate of the firm who has worked with the deceased and has suffered much sexual harrassment from him which, the police think, makes her the number one suspect. Tyler Waddill, another associate and actually the largest impediment to her job advancement, comes to her rescue. As an arrest warrant for Mayson is imminent they run and a national manhunt is initiated.
This is a must read for mystery/legal/romance fans and anything politically correct or probably incorrect stories. It is a revolting tale of an attempt to control the Supreme Court of the United States in order to change the face of politics in America. I have to admit that I hung on every page but really enjoyed the chase more than the corruption. Reading about these two people who were on the run and what they had to do to survive kept me on the edge of my chair. Even the idea that something like this is possible in the government could send a shiver or two up your spine. Good luck to Mr. Brown and, I'm looking forward to the next book.
