Supreme Justice: A Novel of Suspense (Mass Market Paperback)
Policewoman Sara Woodruff, on death row for murdering her lover, John Finley, is appealing her case to the United States Supreme Court. But the unexpected resignation of a prominent justice could sink her appeal. Then a second justice is attacked for no apparent reason.
Called in to quietly investigate, p.i. Dana Cutler finds disturbing links between the Woodruff appeal, the ominous incidents in the justices' chambers . . . and a shootout that occurred years before on a small freighter docked upriver in Shelby, Oregon, with only one survivor: John Finley. Joining forces with former colleagues Brad Miller and FBI agent Keith Evans, who helped bring down a president in Executive Privilege, it's not long before Dana discovers a deadly secret in the heart of the U.S. intelligence community.
