The sudden death of Utah's Senator Orrin Hatch propels his successor, Lester Horner, first into Hatch's Senate seat and then on to become the first Mormon associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Carried along with Horner is Blythe Oaks, an ambitious and intelligent woman who is also Horner's favorite law clerk and fellow Mormon. But Blythe's reputation - and, by extension, Lester Horner's - is threatened when a female former employee accuses her of sexual harassment and career sabotage.
In Higher Authority White shifts his focus from Dr. Alan Gregory, the hero of Privileged Information and the national best seller Private Practices, to Alan's fiancée, Lauren Crowder. The pool-shooting deputy D.A.'s life is already complicated enough as she picks her way through her relationship with Alan at the same time she is fighting her quiet and dignified battle with multiple sclerosis. But since Blythe's accuser happens to be Lauren's kid sister, aspiring stand-up comic Teresa Crowder, Lauren plunges into the case. And she gets immediate help from an old law school buddy, Robin Torr, whose practice is in Salt Lake City.
When, suddenly, Blythe Oaks is savagely murdered in Washington, D.C., the lengths to which someone will go to protect secrets that might prove embarrassing to higher authorities in the church are starkly revealed. And as Crowder and Torr probe more and more deeply into these secrets, with timely help from Alan Gregory and his old friend Detective Sam Purdy of the Boulder, Colorado, police, White's tough but determined women find the body count growing and themselves placed in jeopardy by a remorseless killer.

Killing in God's Name
- Me & My Girls
That's enough for me.
Dick Hill is the reason I listened to this one after the first two, he is the best. I won't be listening to any more of this series though, if that's any part of reality in that part of the country it explains a lot about what's happened there in recent years. Leg shaving men, lesbians everywhere and almost everyone in therapy...........can't be that bad but I'm done listening anyway.
The characterization of the Mormon religion, don't know how much of that was based on fact, if any, but it painted a pretty grim picture.
Sam Purdy, the only regular person in the whole story.
Not for me.
I'd love to know how Dick Hill does reads like this one. It seems almost impossible that he can be doing all those voices but I see no note to the contrary.
