From the inside jacket flap: CHAOS ERUPTS at the U.S. Supreme Court when an assassin guns down six justices as they are hearing a case.
Solicitor General Jefferson McKenna, the government’s top lawyer in the Supreme Court, is appointed to the multiagency commission investigating the murders. As Congress draws battle lines over who will replace the slain justices, the commission follows clue after clue, each one pointing to an unlikely suspect: McKenna himself.
In a desperate bid to prove his innocence, McKenna, on the run with his deputy, Kate Porter, must track down a disgraced law clerk with ties to hidden Saudi assets. But their search leads to unexpected alliances, unearthing dark secrets and corruption at the highest levels — and the people with clues to the riddle keep turning up dead. From the marble halls of the high court to the inner corridors of the West Wing, from the D.C. housing projects to the desolate back roads of a New York Indian reservation, McKenna and Porter are on a collision course with a shadowy enemy who will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.
From its explosive first page to its haunting conclusion, THE LAST JUSTICE explores the politics of law, the bounds of friendship and love, and the frightening price of unbridled ambition.
For me there is something about a legal thriller set in Washington, D.C. that seems to scream this is going to be exciting. And who better to write such a book than a legal expert? Anthony J. Franze is a lawyer in the Appellate and Supreme Court practice at a large Washington, D.C. law firm so he knows whereof he speaks. Get ready “The Last Justice” has an action-packed explosive beginning and rockets along from there. McKenna is accused by the Senate and is now on the run as he desperately tries to clear his name and find out who really is behind the conspiracy. Action, adventure, twists and turns as you read as fast as you can to find out what will happen next. Mr. Franze has given us a great legal thriller that will keep you up late so I recommend that you start reading early because you will not want to put it down until you finish, no matter what time it is. I look forward to more stories from this very talented author.
