I am an avid reader of this author, but found this book hard to follow since it seemed to constantly jump from one story to another. I hoped that soon all the characters would meld and the story would become consistent, which didn't happen. Disappointing compared to his other books.

This may not be the worst book you could read as the story is interesting at different points, but the author takes it to such heights of silliness that I just couldn't take it seriously. Another reviewer pointed out that the story jumps around a lot, and that makes it hard to follow as well. So, if you are looking for something that is not intellectually challenging, then go for Supreme Justice. You'll forget about it minutes after you are finished with it, but no harm will be done. No animals will be hurt, and, if you get the e-book, no trees will have suffered needlessly.

This story seemed to not move along very quickly. I found myself skipping pages and I have never done this with his previous books.

A conspiracy surrounding state secrets threatens the life of a Supreme Court Justice and her clerk (the star of an earlier book by Margolin). Aside from the ludicrous premise at the center¿a conspiracy involving whether or not the Supreme Court will grant cert on a particular case¿the factual minutiae are surprisingly accurate. Too bad they¿re delivered, assembly-line style, every couple of pages. Infodumps are hard!

Wow! If this is "not his best," I need to go back and read some of his previous books. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it kept me guessing until the end. The storyline moves quickly and the characters are believable although a lot braver than I would be if found in any of these situations.

Brad Miller returns as clerk to a Supreme Court Justice. While he is hoping for a return to normalcy, corruption reaches the court and he is asked to quietly look into it with the help of Dana Cutler. As they investigate they find the corruption reaches deep into Washington power circles and their lives become in danger. While not his best, Supreme Justice is a very good political thriller. It has a strong storyline and great characters.

Supreme Justice has a well placed plot with an inventive twist. Margolin's characters are always well crafted, plausible, and sympathetic. I am not so certain that this plot is as plausible as the players. My concern is that Margolin is slipping down the Patterson path with a serial cast, short chapters, and certain sequels. My primary criticism of Supreme Justice is the set up for the next episode. Margolin gets great credit for not brand naming co-writers.Many of Margolin's early works were edge of the seat, can't put it down quality fiction. Supreme Justice is more of an oh, here's another one.

Get those dishes done, and clean up that kitchen, before starting any of Mr. Fantastic Margolin's thrillers! Love ALL of his books! Superman! Wow!

Fast paced thriller. Sometimes I think I might have a heart attack from the excitement and suspense in Phillip Margolin's legal thrillers! They are nonstop, never a dull moment reading. And that's the way I like my books. Exciting and can't put down from page one!

I enjoyed the story.  It wasn't a deep read, but that's not what I was looking for.  A nice, quick adventure.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It had a good plot that felt really current, even though it was written three years ago. I'm just finishing my third Philip Margolin book and haven't yet been dissappointed.

This novel is an exciting thriller, a puzzling murder mystery involving a ghost ship and the President's nominee to the U.S Supreme Court. The story leads us in a twisted tale that opens more questions than answers involving a real soup mix of law enforcement officers: local police, state police, CIA, FBI, Homeland security and the U.S. Supreme court... (Hahaha it seems the only group missing is the keystone cops..:) ) This is quite an involved story with numerous characters, plots and sub-plots weaving in and out. The main plot involves an attack on Felicia Moss, a Supreme Court Justice, who has the swing vote concerning a death penalty case reviewing the fate of Sara Wooddruff, a police officer, convicted of murdering her boyfriend, John Finley. When the officer's appeal reaches the top court, shadowy links begin to surface to a mysterious ghost ship and several cold case murders. Reopening the case threatens to uncork a bubbling mess hidden within the justice system. Private investigator Dana Cutler, FBI Agent Keith Evans and attorney Brad Miller are brought in to determine why the murder case is causing shockwaves in Washington. As they search for answers, they are forced to pull out every trick in the book, jump many hoops and cross many avenues. The result will inevitably leave a warm spot in the heart of any demanding mystery reader. This book is sharply written with an interesting and charming cast. Although some recurring characters from "Executive Privilege" have the lead roles, not knowing their past history did not deter my interest, the non-stop action kept me on the edge of my seat and entertained for hours.
