Book Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Supreme Justice by Max Allan Collins 18 July 2014
By Gill VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
When Supreme Court Justice Henry Venter is gunned down while at dinner in a Washington restaurant, the authorities assume that it was a bungled robbery. A multi agency task force led by the FBI is set up to find the perpetrators. Head of the task force is Gabe Sloan who asks his old friend, former Secret Service Agent Joseph “Peep” Reader to help with the investigation. Given his expertise in reading people and their body language – hence the nickname Peep- Reeder views the CCTV footage. Reeder, though seen as a hero for having taken a bullet for the previous President, was badly injured during the assassination attempt and now heads up a private security firm. He is, however, persona non grata with many of those on the task force for the views he expressed after the attempt so it is not surprising that his theory that the robbery was in fact a pre-planned assassination does not gain him many supporters. That soon changes when a second Justice is gunned down at his home 24 hours later and Reeder is paired up with rising star FBI Agent Patti Rogers to investigate.
What follows is a fast paced, action packed and clever thriller with well-developed characters, relationships and storyline (especially between the more cynical yet likeable Reeder and the enthusiastic Rogers) which I found to be captivating and thoroughly enjoyable. I would be delighted if the author wrote a sequel with Reeder and Rogers as I believe there is more be gleaned from these characters. The crux of the plot is also interesting to consider – could the balance of power in the US Supreme Court be swayed if certain members are taken out of the equation?

1.0 out of 5 stars A poor read 5 July 2014
By SAS
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a fan of authors like Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Brad Taylor etc and when I read the description I had high hopes for the novel.

unfortunately it was not to be, the plot is badly executed with a plot twist that was obvious, basic mistakes are made, like we are expected to believe that the director of the CIA and a Cabinet Secretary have no bodyguards.

The book is trying to recreate much better books, by the likes of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor, for liberals and I think doing so poorly.

I am sure some people will enjoy this novel but not myself.

Grabs the attention from the first page. Just the thing to read from your Sun lounger. Not too heavy just a good old fashioned page turner.
