I stayed up way too late reading this one!

This one is outside of what I normally read these days, but it is Abrams’ first fiction under her own name, and I wasn’t passing it up. I was not disappointed. It’s a political thriller filled with fascinating puzzles, over-the-top cover-ups, judicial history, and dangerous (or life-saving) biotech research.  Brilliant young law clerk Avery Keene finds herself the legal guardian and power of attorney for her suddenly comatose mentor and boss—Supreme Court Justice Wynn. Wynn’s machinations push her into a deadly game, exploding her life, and starting her on a dangerous hunt for answers.
