The Tenth Justice
Fresh from Yale Law, Ben Addison is a new clerk for one of the Supreme Court's most respected justices. Along with his co-clerk, Lisa, Ben represents the best of the fledgling legal community: sharp, perfectionistic, and painstakingly conscientious - but just as green. So when he inadvertently reveals the confidential outcome of an upcoming Court decision, and one of the parties to the case makes millions, Ben starts to sweat. Big time.
Ben confides in Lisa and turns to his D.C. housemates for help. They offer their coveted insiders' access - Nathan works at the State Department, Eric reports for a Washington daily, and Ober is an assistant to a leading senator - to help outsnake the blackmailer who holds Ben's once-golden future hostage. But it's not long before these inseparable pals discover how dangerous their misuse of power can be, even when accompanied by the very best of intentions. And when a suspicious leak develops from within their own circle, Ben and his friends find themselves pitted against each other in a battle of shifting alliances and fierce deceptions that strikes to the weaknesses in their friendships, threatens to ruin their careers - and ultimately may cost them their lives.
