Revue de presse
“[An] intriguing glimpse into the inner workings of the court. As always with Margolin, roller-coaster plot propels the action along, with plenty of twists and turns to keep things interesting.” (The Portland Oregonian)
“Margolin’s latest is a fast-paced yarn connecting a Supreme Court vacancy, a death row inmate, an ex-CIA chief and an attack on another Justice.” (New York Post, Required Reading)
“Get ready for a page-turning thriller. . . . [It] will keep you guessing until the last page.” (National Examiner)
“A good old fashioned political thriller. . . . Supreme Justice is a simple pleasure. . . . An exciting and enjoyable mystery.” (Huffington Post)
“Margolin creates a tangled plot. . . . The ending was deliciously devious.” (Bellingham Herald)
“A wry twist ending . . . puts a legal cherry on top of this satisfying gulp of Supreme Justice.” (Clarion Ledger)
“Margolin has come up with a winning recipe for success: by combining his legal expertise and experience with attention-grabbing characters and surprising storylines, he’s assured himself a secure spot in a genre known for keeping people guessing.” (Cascadia Weekly)
“Action speeds along through 65 fast-paced chapters with more bodies along the way. . . . But don’t think you can solve this one on your own. Just when you think it’s wrapping up, there is another surprise.” (The Oklahoman)
Présentation de l'éditeur
“A master of plot and pacing—and one of those rare authors who can create a genuinely surprising ending.”

— Chicago Tribune
The crew from the New York Times bestseller Executive Privilege is back in another pulse-racing thriller from Phillip Margolin. Fans of John Grisham, David Baldacci, James Patterson, and Scott Turow—as well as Margolin’s own immensely popular Amanda and Frank Jaffe books like Fugitive, Wild Justice, and Proof Positive—won’t be able to put down Supreme Justice until the last spellbinding page.

Gist of the story, our hero Brad Miller and heroine Dana Cutler are back and eventually teamed together to solve another high profile case because of the powerful people they end up investigating. Brad is thrown into the fire again as he saves the life of a supreme court justice in the parking garage of the Supreme Court Building. He then pulls Dana in to help investigate a case of Certitori that is before the court.
While I enjoyed the book I did have my issues with it. As you read be sure to follow the fact that the time line changes. It starts in 2006 moves to 2011 and goes back to 2006 - 2007 then back again to 2011. That's fine, but I was so excited about the events in 2011 that I got distracted by the prolonged revert back to 2006 and the case that is now coming before the Supreme Court in 2011. I wanted to finalize some things in 2011 but was taken back through the previous case. Yeah, I know you needed that for the development, lets just say I was caught up in the Supreme Court Garage and wanted to know how that was going to turn out.
Margolin does a great job of weaving three sub-plots together into one larger plot. The twists and turns keep you wondering. Oh and the end, I was surprised. There was one more twist to the story that I didn't expect.
While I only gave this 3.5 stars, that's mainly because I so loved Executive Privilege that I couldn't rate this one as high.
But, if you like Margolin's stories I can say that you will enjoy this summer read. Don't pass it up because of my impatience with the back and forth nature of the book.
This book follows on from Executive Privilege with many of the same characters from that book getting up to their elbows and eyeballs in a piece of intrigue that is very,very dangerous.
The connector for the storylines is a petition for a writ of certiorari from a convicted murderer in Oregon to the Supreme Court, the granting of which will unravel some very large misdeeds done by some very important and powerful people who are willing to kill to prevent their misdeeds from being discovered.
Telling you more about the plot would do the book a disservice because the story has many unexpected and unforseen twists and turns which are the hallmark of this author. The court is in session....
