Young U.S. attorney Marshall Jackson is handed the biggest case of his career when Supreme Court Justice Farrel Douglas is gunned down in Detroit. Conservative Justice Douglas had more than a few enemies in the city's African-American community, and no one is surprised when one of its most notorious radical activists is charged with the crime.

That's the simple description of what is a more complex story of multiple story lines involving race, personal relationships and conspiracy.
US Attorney Marshall Jackson's newest case is the assassination of a Supreme Court justice. The guy was hated by a lot of people and the case gets complicated fast and Marshall's life gets into the mix. The plot sounds ordinary and it kind of is but the telling of it is way above ordinary. This is the kind of book that just comes alive. I feel like, now, having finished it, that I want to call up a couple of the characters and see how they are doing, ask what's new, etc. It's a wonderful read.
This took me FOREVER..but I enjoyed it. :)
