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.

    "Fabulous"
    Where does The Tenth Justice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best I have listened to, just outstanding from start to finish. Could not put it down or rather turn it off

    "Amazing first book."

    The author has captured my full attention with this book being the first published by Mr. Meltzer was so well thought out with unforeseen plot twists and characters. I am uncontrollably excited to read the 2nd book.
    Thank you Brad Meltzer.

    Story
    "Frat Boys at the Supreme Court"

    Good start, but a little slow and repetitive toward the end. Highly imaginative story that could benefit from a consultant who actually held a government job in a secure position. Four young men revel in acting like twelve year olds holding very responsible jobs. Scott Brick delivers pee pee jokes as brilliantly as he does everything else.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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!

    "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.
