In suburban Georgetown, a killer's Reeboks whisper on the floor of a posh home. In a seedy D.C. porno house, a patron is swiftly garrotted 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's political dynamite. Suddenly Darby is witness to a murder - a murder intended for her. Going underground, she finds that there is only one person - an ambitious reporter after a newsbreak hotter than Watergate - she can trust 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 someone has read Darby's brief - someone who will stop at nothing to destroy the evidence of an unthinkable crime.

A Clever Yarn

Equivalent of Couldn't put it down..
Not sure why I like this book. I simply couldn't stop listening to it. Just have to know what is going to happen next, even though you know the plot from the movie...
Each character was accurately portrayed by the narrator. I often judge the audio books by the performance of the narrator. The voice. The emotional state of the character, etc.. I certainly rate Alexander Adams to be one of the best. Will be looking for more of his work.
My first Grisham's book. Although I find this book to be slightly above average story, I will five another one his novel a try. Having said that, still couldn't stop listening. It was very absorbing.
