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?

    Story
    "Small thriller packed with dull everyday life"

    A meandering story that built to almost nothing. Outside the small thriller component, probably an accurate look at the workaday Supreme Court.

    "Great story!"

    Lots of twists and turns and fairly unpredictable - which I enjoy. Best book I have listened to in a while.

    Story
    "A great story about roomates."
    Where does The Tenth Justice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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
    "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.

    "I'm surprised at how bad this is..."

    I could only listen to the first 3 chapters of this book before I deleted it. The behavior of the main characters was incredibly rude, sexist, and ultra-frat-boy. Their emotional development must have been arrested sometime during high school. In fact, they were so obnoxious it made me hope that bad things WOULD happen to them.

    I also found the decisions made by the main character were totally unbelievable for a young man whose accomplishments were so outstanding he was selected among thousands to work for a Supreme Court Justice.

    I'm willing to overlook a lot of inconsistencies in a suspense book, but The Tenth Justice went way past my tolerance level.

    Story
    "Disappointing"

    The narration was overly dramatic and irritating. The story was often also filled with non-sensical interactions between the characters. None of the characters were like-able. If you like smart aleck friends being sarcastic with each other, this is your book. Barely made it through.
