Published by HarperCollins

New York Times bestselling author Phillip Margolin returns to the corridors of power in Washington, D.C., with an exciting thriller about a ghost ship and the President's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Sarah Woodruff, on death row in Oregon for murdering her lover, John Finley, has appealed her case to the Supreme Court just when a prominent justice resigns, leaving a vacancy.

Then, for no apparent reason, another justice is mysteriously attacked. Dana Cutler—one of the heroes from Margolin's bestselling Executive Privilege—is quietly called in to investigate. She looks for links between the Woodruff appeal and the ominous incidents in the justices' chambers, which eventually lead her to a shoot-out that took place years ago on a small freighter docked upriver in Shelby, Oregon, containing a dead crew and illegal drugs. The only survivor on board? John Finley.

With the help of Brad Miller and Keith Evans, Dana uncovers a plot by a rogue element in the American intelligence community involving the president's nominee to the Supreme Court, and soon the trio is thrown back into the grips of a deadly, executive danger.

With nonstop action, Supreme Justice picks up where Executive Privilege left off, putting readers right back where they were—on the edge of their seats.

Rated 3/5
Supreme Justice has a well placed plot with an inventive twist. Margolin's characters are always well crafted, plausible, and sympathetic. I am not so certain that this plot is as plausible as the players. My concern is that Margolin is slipping down the Patterson path with a serial cast, short chapters, and certain sequels. My primary criticism of Supreme Justice is the set up for the next episode. Margolin gets great credit for not brand naming co-writers.Many of Margolin's early works were edge of the seat, can't put it down quality fiction. Supreme Justice is more of an oh, here's another one.

Wow! If this is "not his best," I need to go back and read some of his previous books. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it kept me guessing until the end. The storyline moves quickly and the characters are believable although a lot braver than I would be if found in any of these situations.

Brad Miller returns as clerk to a Supreme Court Justice. While he is hoping for a return to normalcy, corruption reaches the court and he is asked to quietly look into it with the help of Dana Cutler. As they investigate they find the corruption reaches deep into Washington power circles and their lives become in danger. While not his best, Supreme Justice is a very good political thriller. It has a strong storyline and great characters.

Rated 1/5
A conspiracy surrounding state secrets threatens the life of a Supreme Court Justice and her clerk (the star of an earlier book by Margolin). Aside from the ludicrous premise at the center—a conspiracy involving whether or not the Supreme Court will grant cert on a particular case—the factual minutiae are surprisingly accurate. Too bad they’re delivered, assembly-line style, every couple of pages. Infodumps are hard!
