Sitting on death row after being convicted of killing her lover,
former cop Sara Woodruff is awaiting the results of her appeal that
has reached the United States Supreme Court. But the unexpected
resignation of one justice coupled with the attack of another has
derailed her case.
Dana Cutler has been called in to quietly investigate some odd
links between the ominous incidences in the justices’ chambers
and the Woodruff appeal. Following the circuitous trail back to
an event that happened years before involving a shootout on a ship
docked in Oregon, Cutler and her colleagues uncover a deadly secret
involving the U.S. intelligence community.
Margolin’s pacing, genuine characters and plot twists make
his novels unforgettable reads. Like his previous works, “Supreme
Justice” is guaranteed to keep you glued to the page and perched
on the edge of your chair from start to finish.
