Not yet rated | write a review
Nine Supreme Court judges will soon decide four history-making cases. Eight of them will split along party lines four to four. The ninth judge, holding the swing vote, will tip the scales of justice. He''s a good man, a fine man, and, unknown to nearly everyone, a dying man-barely kept alive by machines in a very private hospital.

High-powered Washington attorney Jerry Green is one of the privileged few who discovers American justice rides on the rise and fall of a respirator. Now he''s been called by the President himself to do something about it. It''s a hunt for truth that will arouse his darkest suspicions...force him to make a shocking choice...and save the legitimacy of American justice. Or shatter it forever...

From Our Editors

Renowned author William J. Coughlin brings us a pulse-poundingly-tense tale of deceit at the high-test level of the American justice system. Respected Washington attorney Jerry Green has made a startling discovery: the ninth judge presiding over the Supreme Court is dying, his very life dependent upon machines and those who maintain them. And it`s this judge who will supposedly be the deciding vote in four of the most important cases in American legal history. It`s up to Green to decide who`s really calling the shots and expose them before the system becomes irretrievably corrupt. The Court is a spellbinding legal drama.
