Synopsis

In The Tenth Justice, 26-year-old Columbia Law grad Brad Meltzer brings his dynamic voice to unexplored legal thriller territory -- the Supreme Court -- in a firecracker debut that will challenge your expectations of the genre.

Fresh out of Yale Law, Ben Addison is a new clerk for one of the Supreme Court's most respected justices. He's as bright and conscientious as they come -- and just as green. When Ben inadvertently reveals the confidential outcome of an upcoming Court decision, one of the parties in the case makes millions. Needless to say, Ben starts to sweat.

Ben confides in his co-clerk and turns to his D.C. housemates for help. The young Washington professionals offer Ben their coveted insider's access -- at the State Department, a senator's office, and a Washington newspaper -- to help out snake the blackmailer who holds Ben's once-golden future hostage in exchange for more information on upcoming Court decisions. But it's not long before the inseparable friends discover how dangerous their misuse of insider power can be. When a suspicious leak develops from within their circle, they find themselves pitted against each other in a battle of shifting alliances and fierce deceptions that threatens their friendships, their careers -- and ultimately their lives.

With dialogue as true as it is sharp-witted, characters as likable as they are familiar, and a plot so addictive it will keep you listening into the night, The Tenth Justice is the one thriller you and your friends will find yourselves talking about this year, from an undeniably original writer you'll be following for years to come.
