Worldwide bestseller John Grisham will keep you on the edge of your
seat with his most suspenseful thriller yet. Given the importance
of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them,
and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable
that in the history of the USA only four active federal judges have
been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett just became number five. His
body was found in the small basement of a lakeside cabin he had
built himself and frequently used on weekends. When he did not show
up for a trial on Monday morning, his law clerks panicked, called
the FBI, and in due course the agents found the crime scene. There
was no forced entry, no struggle, just two dead bodies - Judge
Fawcett and his young secretary. I did not know Judge Fawcett, but
I know who killed him, and why. I am a lawyer, and I am in prison.
It's a long story.
