James Scott Bell's writing has never let me down. This novel had everything: a page-turning plot, interesting history, intelligent dialogue, intriguing questions to ponder, touches of humor, and even a lovely romance tucked between the suspense and action. Most of all, it had succint, witty, crisp writing. It made me smile and it made me cry. I couldn't ask for more in a book.

James Scott Bell tackles a fascinating dilemma: What if a Supreme Court Justice becomes a Christian right before appointment as chief justice? The one who holds tie-breaking power has changed her worldview. Bell handles the social debate with excellence and entertaining form. I meant to do a quick read, but had to peruse every word. The woman who had a knack for 'beating God back with a stick,' must scramble to open herself up to faith and the perplexity of answering why she's become the bait in a vicious public battle. Great enlightenment for anyone who'd like to understand the people behind the politics.
