Review
A very suspenseful and timely thriller about a private eye trying to make a scandal involving a supreme court judge disappear. This is the latest in the series with Nick Heller as the central character. Very strong plot which gets a little contrived toward the end but is still a good story.  Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog
