Random House, Inc.
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.

Excellent book, hard to put down. It does stretch the limits of credibility at times but the story and the writing easily make up for it

This is the first book of John Grisham's that I've read and I must say it was an excellently written narrative. The pacing was terrific, the characters believable, and the dialogue even a little humorous in places. I'll definitely read more by this author.

Struggled to finish this book. Felt like it lost steam as it progressed. Seemed redundant and the dialogue was poor.
