On a cold day in January, President Kerry Kilcannon takes the oath of office—and within days makes his first, most important move: appointing a new Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Kilcannon’s choice is a female judge with a brilliant record … and a secret.

While the senate spars over Caroline Masters’ nomination, an inflammatory abortion rights case is making its way toward the judge—and will explode into the headlines. Suddenly the most divisive issue in America turns the president’s nomination into all-out war. And from Judge Masters to a conservative, war-hero senator facing a crisis of conscience and a fifteen-year-old girl battling for her future, no one will be safe. Protect and Defend takes us on a riveting journey between what is legal, what is right … and the price of finally knowing the difference.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Susanna | 4/12/2011

    " A fun, and turned out to be a compulsive, read.

    I will be on the lookout for more of Mr. Patterson's books. "

    " Great exploration of the abortion thema and Washington political theather.
    But... the author has clearly a pro-choice point of view, and i think that comes in the book. No judgement here, i wonder if it's really possible to be completly neutral in a issue like this. "

    " Caroline Masters' rise to Chief Justice is an engrossing portrait of the inner sanctums of law and politics. There are follow-up books that aren't quite as good but still worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Marilyn | 1/5/2011

    " One of my favorites. Complex subject - religion, politics, family dynamics, trust, parental control - all done in a thoughtful manner that is fair to both sides on a very divisive issue. "
