Two Supreme Court Justices are murdered. The FBI has no clues. Their deaths afford the President the opportunity to appoint two ultra conservative justices who will assure a conservative court for years to come. A second year Tulane University law student, Darby Shaw, becomes obsessed with the crime and prepares a highly speculative brief. When everyone associated with the brief meet violent deaths and someone wants Darby dead, the brief, code named Pelican, attracts attention. A Washington Post reporter, Gray Grantham, becomes involved in the investigation. This is definitely a page turner but I found the last chapter anti-climatic.
How many stars does the book deserve?: ☆☆☆☆
