Black Robes on White Horses by Daniel B. Jeffs
Thrust into the arena of social aggression, political terrorism, legal anarchy and media-driven chaos, America is on the verge of a cultural breakdown. The country is beset by treason, impeachment, and the assassinations of the President and all but one in the presidential line of succession. She happens to be the President's widow. In the constitutional crisis that follows, Supreme Court Chief Justice Simon Lincoln and his minions rise to the occasion, elevate themselves to national heroes with a series of manipulated court decisions and move to create a new constitution. One of Lincoln's clerks, Linda Feller, discovers his blueprint for control. Federal Judge Carol O'Donnell, Homicide Captain Brian Parker, and a small band of patriots embark on a treacherous journey to stop Lincoln's quest for absolute power.
