Summary
Two Supreme Court justices have been murdered and a lone law student turns her suspicions about the deaths into a speculative brief that sends shock waves into the highest levels of government. She and a determined investigative reporter want to tell the world what they have uncovered--if they live to tell it. The race is on and these two are more than runners. They're moving targets
