A conscientious supreme court clerk. The professionals who share his house. A minor slip-up. Ben Addison, fresh from Yale Law, is a new clerk for one of the Supreme Court's most respected justices. But when he accidentally reveals the secret outcome of an upcoming decision, a blackmailer makes millions and Ben starts to sweat. Big time. He turns to his co-clerk, Lisa, and his housemates, Nathan, Eric, and Ober, for help. Washington's best and brightest, they offer coveted insider access to the State Department, a major Washington newspaper, and the Senate. But before they know it, their careers - and their lives - are on the line. Where does loyalty end? Where does greed begin? And how much can you really trust your friends?
Good value for the price
It was slightly predictable and wordy. It got repetitive and the characters weren't really likeable. However, the plot was interesting and it is very time consuming if you drive a lot like I do
Too many "fill in" words, but still a compelling tale
My favorite words:
Thank Heavens it was a compelling story. but I had to work really hard for the first hour to learn when to ignore these types of words. I thoroughly enjoyed the theme of the book, and hope to see another book I might enjoy, but I really would consider these annoyances.
I seldom write reviews, but I thought that I ought to back up the great comments made by "slavings41" from almost ONE year ago. These comments are better than mine, but the numbers matter.

B. M. will bore you even with the most thrilling plot.
He will drag on and on until you die of tedium and Scott Brick is an ideal accomplice with
his ridiculously emphatic elocution.
They surely will perform perfect crime if you don't give up listening halfway through their exercise...................
which I did for a second time, and never again.
