Publisher's Summary

A conscientious supreme court clerk. The professionals who share his house. A minor slip-up.

Ben Addison, fresh from Yale Law, is a new clerk for one of the Supreme Court's most respected justices. But when he accidentally reveals the secret outcome of an upcoming decision, a blackmailer makes millions and Ben starts to sweat. Big time. He turns to his co-clerk, Lisa, and his housemates, Nathan, Eric, and Ober, for help. Washington's best and brightest, they offer coveted insider access to the State Department, a major Washington newspaper, and the Senate. But before they know it, their careers - and their lives - are on the line.

Where does loyalty end? Where does greed begin? And how much can you really trust your friends?

    "Better than anticipated"

    This book is a good read. I didn't expect as much depth as there is. The characters are developed, the plot is interesting, and the reader is outstanding. What could have been a bland story about four friends (plus one) is thoughtful and engaging. Recommended!

    "Good for a one time listen"

    I ended up liking this book, even though a I found a couple of the characters frustrating at times it's a good read. It does start off a little slow but it picks up speed towards the end. And it keeps you throwing theories around in your head the whole time.

    It kept me interested and waiting to know what happened almost the whole time.

    "Even Scott Brick couldn't make this interesting!"

    I really enjoyed Meltzer's Zero Game, Millionaires and First Counsel but this one is idiotic and boring. I too kept trying to figure out what was next...I wish I had just cut my losses and stopped listening. Go back to what works Brad...this didn't.

    "The Tenth Justice"

    After listening to this book I was very disappointed at myself for listening and Meltzer for writing it. Althought the basic plot was good, the characters were totally unbelivable. I wish I could get my money back.

    "the tenth justice"

    This book is beyond absurd! This author clearly has no knowledge of the law nor the rules of prodedure for the judiciary. It is ridiculous to consider the nitwits portrayed here as clerks to the justices of the US Supreme Court as baring any resemblance to the men and women who achieve this position. This book was so strewn with errors to make it almost unbearable to listen to!

    "A sophomoric & moronic book ..."

    Ridiculous! I'd give this histrionic nasty stupid and vile testosterone-zone book a negative 2 stars if that were only possible! I cannot believe that ANYONE enjoyed this poorly plotted unbelievable and simpering tale. Jeez! Did every single relative of the author write a review here?? I was truly embarrassed for the author and the reader. OY. Every woman in this story is a stereotype, every conversation a juvenile adolescent male diatribe, etc. etc. Every single joke (I kid you not) is about (a) vomit or (b) good beer.

    In the top 20. It was a great listen. I highly recommend this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How I could never figure out the ending. Just when I did, the ruthless one changed.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Oder.


    Any additional comments?

    As stated above I recommend this book. This is Meltzer's best one so far.

    "Absurd"

    Rediculous characters. Plot makes no sense. Totally not credible. Wish I had paid attention to the other reviews that say the same thing.

    "Story with tremendous potential poorly executed"
    What disappointed you about The Tenth Justice?

    Great story line but took unnecessary and stupid plot tangents and the relationships among the mail characters were entirely unrealistic.


    Has The Tenth Justice turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, this is one of my favorite genres, I will give Meltzer one more try before being turned off of him.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick is the only thing that saves this from being unbearable.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The initial story idea was fantastic and captivating, I just felt like it could have been told much better.
