_______________________________________ Two Supreme Court Justices are dead, their murders unsolved. But one woman might have found the answer – if she can live to tell it. Darby Shaw is a brilliant New Orleans legal student with a sharp political mind. For her own amusement, she draws up a legal brief showing how the judges might have been murdered for political reasons, and shows it to her professor. He shows it to his friend, an FBI lawyer. Then the professor dies in a car bomb. And Darby realises that her brief, which pointed to a vast presidential conspiracy, might be right. Someone is intent on silencing Darby for good – somebody who will stop at nothing to preserve the secrets of the Pelican Brief… _______________________________________ A master at the art of deft characterisation and the skilful delivery of hair-raising crescendos – Irish Independent John Grisham is the master of legal fiction – Jodi Picoult The best thriller writer alive – Ken Follett John Grisham has perfected the art of cooking up convincing, fast-paced thrillers – Telegraph Grisham is a superb, instinctive storyteller – The Times Grishams storytelling genius reminds us that when it comes to legal drama, the master is in a league of his own. – Daily Record Masterful – when Grisham gets in the courtroom he lets rip, drawing scenes so real theyre not just alive, theyre pulsating – Mirror A giant of the thriller genre – TimeOut
