Publisher's Summary

“Meltzer has earned the right to belly up to the bar with John Grisham, Scott Turow, and David Baldacci.” (People

The young attorneys who clerk for Supreme Court justices wield extraordinary power - privy to sensitive material that could prove disastrous in unscrupulous hands, making decisions that could change lives...or destroy them. They are...the 10th justice.

Landing a prestigious position as a Supreme Court clerk fresh out of Yale Law, Ben Addison is on the ultrafast track to success - until he inadvertently shares a classified secret with the wrong listener. And now the anonymous blackmailer who made a killing with Ben’s information is demanding more. 

Guilty of a criminal act, his golden future suddenly in jeopardy, Ben turns for help to his roommates - three close friends from childhood, each strategically placed near the seats of Washington power - and to his beautiful, whip-smart fellow clerk, Lisa Schulman. But trust is a dangerous commodity in the nation’s capital. And when lives, careers, and power are at stake, loyalties can shatter like glass...and betrayals can be lethal.

Re-release

I believe that there were some updates from the original release. I wish this would be noted in the details. I started to listen and it seemed familiar and outdated fir a 2921 release with phone booths and payphones as well as numerous little things. I finally looked it up and saw that it was from the 90's. Of course all those references made sense now, but they did revise to include cell phone references.
Overall a good story. When you find an author you like and go back to read old novels to gain perspective, you do that with that knowledge that you are going back in time. This update leaves a bit of room for improvement.

Don't waste your money

It is rare that I can't even finish an audio book, but I stopped half way through this one. HORRIBLE! The central characters are all supposed to be smart, well-educated 20 somethings, each with important jobs in Washington. But the dialogues, the actions, the attitudes, and the maturities are all of barely post-pubescent junior high boys. I rarely take advantage of Audible's return policy, figuring the mistake of buying a book was mine. So instead of returning I hope to encourage review readers to find something else to order. If I wanted to read some combination of the Hardy Boys and Beevis and Butthead I might have chosen this book. Otherwise it is a total waste of time and money.
