A conscientious Supreme Court clerk.
The young Washington professionals who share a house.
A minor slip-up.
A major thriller.
Fresh from Yale Law, Ben Addison is a new clerk for one of
the Supreme Court’s most respected justices. Along with his co-clerk, Lisa, Ben
represents the best of the fledging legal community: sharp, perfectionistic, and
painstakingly conscientious, but just as green. So when he inadvertently
reveals the confidential outcome of an upcoming Court decision, and one of the
parties to the case makes millions, Ben starts to sweat. Big time.
Ben confides in Lisa and turns to his D.C. housemates for
help. They offer up their coveted insiders’ access—Nathan works at the State
Department, Eric reports for a Washington daily, and Ober is an assistant to a
leading senator—to help out-snake the blackmailer who holds Ben’s once-golden
future hostage. But it’s not long before these inseparable pals discover how
dangerous their misuse of power can be, even when accompanied by the very best
of intentions. And when a suspicious leak develops from within their own
circle, Ben and his friends find themselves pitted against each other in a
battle of shifting alliances and fierce deceptions that strikes to the
weaknesses in their friendships, threatens to ruin their careers, and may
ultimately cost them their lives.
Where does loyalty end?
Where does greed begin?
And how much can you really trust your friends?
