Description

A Washington, D.C. lawyer and a frequent major media commentator on the Supreme Court, Anthony Franze delivers a high-stakes story of family, power, loss and revenge set within the insular world of the highest court of our country. Among Washington D.C. power players, everyone has secrets they desperately want to keep hidden, including Sean Serrat, a Supreme Court lawyer. Sean transformed his misspent youth into a model adulthood, and now has one of the most respected legal careers in the country. But just as he learns he's on the short list to be nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court, his daughter, Abby, a talented and dedicated law student, goes missing. Abby's lifeless body is soon found in the library of the Supreme Court, and her boyfriend, Malik Montgomery, a law clerk at the high court, is immediately arrested. The ensuing media frenzy leads to allegations that Malik's arrest was racially motivated, sparking a national controversy. While the Serrat family works through their grief, Sean begins to suspect the authorities arrested the wrong person. Delving into the mysteries of his daughter's last days, Sean stumbles over secrets within his own family as well as the lies of some of the most powerful people in the country. People who will stop at nothing to ensure that Sean never exposes the truth.

Professional reviews

"Events from 30 years earlier collide with the present when the daughter of Sean Serrat, who is rumored to be a candidate for the Supreme Court, is found brutally murdered in the Court's library. Robert Petkoff, a prolific and accomplished narrator, masterfully unfolds this smart, suspenseful, nail-biter of a whodunit. Petkoff's deep, versatile voice is mesmerizing. He is equally adept portraying Serrat, a man in his prime; his determined wife, Emily; and their computer-savvy son, Ryan. Petkoff gives equally convincing portrayals of secondary characters, regardless of gender or age. Combined with Petkoff's fine acting skills, this clever story draws you in, wrings you out, and holds you tight, until the very last word. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
