Description


In suburban Georgetown a killer's Reeboks whisper  on the front floor of a posh home... In a seedy  D.C. porno house a patron is swiftly garroted to  death... The next day America learns that two of its  Supreme Court justices have been assassinated. And  in New Orleans, a young law student prepares a  legal brief... To Darby Shaw it was no more than a  legal shot in the dark, a brilliant guess. To the  Washington establishment it was political dynamite.  Suddenly Darby is witness to a murder -- a murder  intended for her. Going underground, she finds  there is only one person she can trust -- an  ambitious reporter after a newsbreak hotter than Watergate  -- to help her piece together the deadly puzzle.  Somewhere between the bayous of Louisiana and the  White House's inner sanctums, a violent cover-up is  being engineered. For somone has read Darby's  brief. Someone who will stop at nothing to destroy the  evidence of an unthinkable crime.
