Abstract:

Two Supreme Court Justices have been murdered. A lone law student turns her suspicions about the deaths into a speculative brief that sends shock waves into the highest levels of government. She finds herself embroiled in a terrifying web of intrigue extending to the highest levels of government. She writes a speculative legal brief exposing the activities of a powerful oil magnate. With the help of Gray Grantham, an investigative reporter, they suspect a good friend of the president is trying to manipulate the outcome of a trial that is now before the Supreme Court.
