Shadow of Power (Large Print) (Paul Madriani Novels)

Shadow of Power (Large Print) (Paul Madriani Novels) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a controversial legal scholar—whose latest book contains shocking information about the U.S. Constitution and founding father Thomas Jefferson—is killed, defense attorney Paul Madriani faces his greatest challenge yet. Searching for the truth in what appears to be an open-and-shut case of murder, Madriani's pursuit of justice pits him against one of the nation's highest public institutions: the Supreme Court.

Synopsis:

Some people will do anything to influence the Supreme Court. They will sweet-talk, sway and seduce. They will beg, borrow or steal. But will they kill? Terry Scarborough is a legal scholar and a provocateur who loves the kinds of controversy that make headlines. With his new book--which claims that the U.S. Constitution and some recently discovered writtings of Thomas Jefferson support racial discrimination--he knows he's adding fuel to the fire. When he is found beaten to death in a San Diego hotel room and a young man with connections to hate groups is charged with first-degree murder, defense attorney Paul Madriani is offered a case he can't pass up. Amid the glare of cameras and the jeers of protesters, Madriami pursues an exclusive witness within the clositered confines of the Supreme Court itself, a search that threatens to rock the very foundation of the federal government. Shadow of Power is the electrifying new novel from a master at the top of his game.
