After taking a bullet for his commander-in-chief, Secret Service agent Joseph Reeder is a hero. But his outspoken criticism of the president he saved—who had stacked the Supreme Court with hard-right justices to overturn Roe v. Wade, amp up the Patriot Act, and shred the First Amendment—put Reeder at odds with the Service’s apolitical nature, making him an outcast.
FBI agent Patti Rogers finds herself paired with the unpopular former agent on a task force investigating the killing of Supreme Court Justice Henry Venter. Reeder—nicknamed “Peep” for his unparalleled skills at reading body language—makes a startling discovery while reviewing a security tape: the shooting was premeditated, not a botched robbery. Even more chilling, the controversial Venter may not be the only justice targeted for death…
Is a mastermind mounting an unprecedented judicial coup aimed at replacing ultra-conservative justices with a new liberal majority? To crack the conspiracy and save the lives of not just the justices but also Reeder’s own family, rising star Rogers and legendary investigator Reeder must push their skills—and themselves—to the limit.

Check out Kritters Ramblings for full review Although Supreme Justices make controversial decisions, they aren't completely entrenched in the scandal and drama of DC; instead they are nicely tucked away! This fantastic piece of fiction brought the Justices to the forefront and both humanized them and showed the way they can be at the center of political drama. As I live outside of DC, I am always drawn to books that are set in DC, but also show the surrounding area - the DMV (DC, MD and VA) as we like to call it. Max Allan Collins allowed this story to really use the surrounding neighborhoods and had them come alive in the story. I absolutely adored the truth in how many police agencies are located in the DC area and getting them to work together as a team to one goal doesn't always end in timeliness!
