Overview

A young law clerk finds himself caught in the crosshairs of a serial killer in this fast-paced thriller set in the high-pressure world of the Supreme Court written by renowned lawyer Anthony Franze.

Things aren t going well for Grayson Hernandez. He just graduated from a fourth-tier law school, he s drowning in student debt, and the only job he can find is as a messenger. The position stings the most because it s at the U.S. Supreme Court, where Gray is forced to watch the best and the brightest from the outside?the elite group of lawyers who serve as the justices law clerks.

When Gray intervenes in a violent mugging, he lands in the good graces of the victim: the Chief Justice of the United States. Gray soon finds himself the newest?and unlikeliest?law clerk at the Supreme Court. It s another world: highbrow debates over justice and the law in the inner sanctum of the nation s highest court; upscale dinners with his new friends; attention from Lauren, the co-clerk he can t stop thinking about.

But just as Gray begins to adapt to his new life, the FBI approaches him with unsettling news. The Feds think there s a killer connected to the Supreme Court. And they want Gray to be their eyes and ears inside One First Street. Little does Gray know that the FBI will soon set its sights on him.

Racing against the clock in a world cloaked in secrecy, Gray must uncover the truth before the murderer strikes again in this thrilling high-stakes story of power and revenge by Washington, D.C. lawyer-turned-author Anthony Franze.

Washington, D.C., attorney Sean Serrat, the hero of this gripping if improbable legal thriller from Franze (The Last Justice), has recently entered private practice after a distinguished career representing the federal government before the Supreme Court. With Sean’s name on the president’s shortlist for filling a vacancy in the high court, he faces the possibility of a long-buried secret resurfacing—30 years earlier, while serving with the U.S. Army in Japan, he helped conceal the senseless murder of a Japanese shopkeeper. In the D.C. subway, a stranger bumps into him and mutters, “They know, Sean.” Then Sean’s law student daughter, Abby, is found murdered in the Supreme Court library. Though the police quickly identify a suspect in the crime, Sean is compelled to do his own digging. The transformation of his family into sleuths strains credibility—especially when his wife whips out a metal lock-pick to break into a room. Cartoonish characters don’t help the over-the-top story line, but fans of Brad Melzer should be satisfied. Agent: Lisa Erbach Vance, Aaron M. Priest Literary Agency. (Mar.)
