Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In suburban Georgetown a killer's Reeboks whisper  on the front floor of a posh home... In a seedy  D.C. porno house a patron is swiftly  garroted to death... The next day America learns  that two of its Supreme Court justices have been  assassinated. And in New Orleans, a young law  student prepares a legal brief... To Darby Shaw it was  no more than a legal shot in the dark, a brilliant  guess. To the Washington establishment it was  political dynamite. Suddenly Darby is witness to a  murder — a murder intended for her. Going  underground, she finds there is only one person she can  trust — an ambitious reporter after a newsbreak  hotter than Watergate — to help her piece together the  deadly puzzle. Somewhere between the bayous of  Louisiana and the White House's inner sanctums, a  violent cover-up is being engineered. For somone has  read Darby's brief. Someone who will stop at  nothing to destroy the evidence of an unthinkable  crime.
