New York Times bestselling author Joseph Finder delivers an exhilarating and timely thriller exploring how even the most powerful among us can be brought down by a carefully crafted lie and how the secrets we keep can never truly stay buried.
The chief justice of the Supreme Court is about to be defamed, his career destroyed, by a powerful gossip website that specializes in dirt on celebs and politicians. Their top reporter has written an expose claiming that he had liaisons with an escort, a young woman prepared to tell the world her salacious tale. But the chief justice is not without allies and his greatest supporter is determined to stop the story in its tracks.
Nick Heller is a private spy—an intelligence operative based in Boston, hired by lawyers, politicians, and even foreign governments. A high-powered investigator with a penchant for doing things his own way, he's called to Washington, DC, to help out in this delicate, potentially explosive situation.
Nick has just forty-eight hours to disprove the story about the chief justice. But when the call girl is found murdered, the case takes a dangerous turn, and Nick resolves to find the mastermind behind the conspiracy before anyone else falls victim to the maelstrom of political scandal and ruined reputations predicated upon one long-buried secret.

"This thriller, full of political intrigue, is the third installment of investigations by Nick Heller, a private intelligence operative from Boston. Here, narrator Holter Graham recounts Heller's efforts to determine who framed the Chief Supreme Court Justice, who leaked a false story to the gossip website Slander Sheet, and who murdered a call girl. Holter delivers dialogue intensely, ratcheting up the tension. And he narrates Heller's internal monologue, which is almost non-stop, smoothly and unemotionally. Heller won't quit investigating D.C. corruption until he uncovers all the answers, no matter how high up the political ladder he has to climb. Graham's straightforward narration is perfect for this convoluted thriller. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
