“A master of plot and pacing—and one of those rare authors who can create a genuinely surprising ending.”
— Lisa Scottoline
“It takes a really crafty storyteller to put people on the edge of their seats and keep them there. Phillip Margolin does just that.”
— Chicago Tribune
The crew from the New York Times bestseller Executive Privilege is back in another pulse-racing thriller from Phillip Margolin. Fans of John Grisham, David Baldacci, James Patterson, and Scott Turow—as well as Margolin’s own immensely popular Amanda and Frank Jaffe books like Fugitive, Wild Justice, and Proof Positive—won’t be able to put down Supreme Justice until the last spellbinding page.
In this entertaining if predictable sequel to Executive Privilege\n (2008) from Margolin, policewoman Sarah Woodruff, who's on death row in Oregon, has been tried twice for murdering her lover, John Finley. Sarah's life depends on an appeal to the Supreme Court, but her appeal, if heard, could expose a criminal plot within the CIA. An unexpected vacancy in the court provides one opportunity to quash Woodruff's attempted appeal. For the man at the center of the plot, however, this isn't enough, and a Supreme Court justice becomes a target for assassination. Once again PI Dana Cutler and law clerk Brad Miller find themselves investigating dastardly doings in Washington, D.C., involving a host of conventional characters, from scheming Beltway sachems to a ghetto-raised African-American justice. Thriller fans who like to see the villains receive their just rewards and the good guys come to no harm will find this a comforting read. \n
Worthwhile New Experience
New author for me. I found the experience worth my time and will read more of his books. The pace was good, characters diverse and interesting, great story with plenty of action and intellect. There were quite a few players involved and at times it was difficult to keep track of who everyone was and what their involvement was. All in all an enjoyable read!
Read through the night. Fantastic thriller...
Supreme Justice: a great read!!
Interesting and held my attention each and every page! A surprise ending which I never saw coming. Only wish Mr. Margolin could write his books more quickly...I look forward to each new book and am never disappointed.
