While Justice Sleeps

While Justice Sleeps by Stacey Abrams is a fast-paced political thriller that takes a behind-the-scenes look at the Supreme Court. Abrams, as a former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives and onetime candidate for Governor, translates her insider knowledge into an intricate plot. When legendary Supreme Court Justice Howard Wynn goes into a coma, he names his young clerk Avery Keene as his legal guardian and power of attorney, leaving both his life and his crucial place as the swing vote on the Supreme Court in her hands. Anyone looking for a plot-driven page-turner for hot summer days should give this a try.
