Landing a prestigious position as a Supreme Court clerk fresh out of Yale Law, Ben Addison is on the ultra-fast track to success—until he inadvertently shares a classified secret with the wrong listener. And now the anonymous blackmailer who made a killing with Ben's information is demanding more. Guilty of a criminal act, his golden future suddenly in jeopardy, Ben turns for help to his roommates—three close friends from childhood, each strategically placed near the seats of Washington power—and to his beautiful, whip-smart fellow clerk, Lisa Schulman.
But trust is a dangerous commodity in the nation's capital. And when lives, careers, and power are at stake, loyalties can shatter like glass . . . and betrayals can be lethal.

Another great novel by Brad Meltzer.
Not as good as expected
This was the third Brad Meltzer book I've read, the other two being the Inner Circle and First Counsel. This book pales in comparison to those two. The characters are much more annoying and irrational, and major plot twists don't really make sense or seem logical.
A Good First Book
I read this when it was first released years ago and I thought it was a good first book. I was a bit concerned that the author was trying too hard to be the next John Grisham, but that didn't turn out to be the case at all.
What I liked about the book is that the plot was so easy to follow - no grand conspiracies, no major governmental cover-ups, no Ex-CIA lone watchdogs trying to fulfill a personal mission. There is a simple case of blackmail. From this, the mystery / thriller aspect of the plot is born, and the plot takes you places you wouldn't expect.
Stay away from his later conspiracy theory novels and stick with this book instead.
It's a quick read that guarantees you won't be able to put it down.
