I would really give this a 3.5 rating. It was a fun, easy read. The book is mostly dialogue, so not alot of fancy prose in this one. It's a "law thriller", although there are really no court situations. The major character is Ben Addison who is a new clerk for a Supreme Court justice. He accidentally tells someone the outcome of an upcoming decision, which is obviously against the code of ethics for someone in his position even if it was not intentional, and of course the person ends up benefitting from the information, making the situation very serious. The story follows Ben, his co-clerk, and his roommates as they try to catch/out-smart the bad guy. I did enjoy the story and the characters, and I even learned some things about the behind-the-scenes and workings of the Supreme Court.
