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.

It's somewhere between 2020 and 2030; the first and fourth amendments have been shredded by neo-con supreme justices and Roe vs. Wade overturned. Then a conservative Supreme Court Justice is murdered in what appears to be a botched robbery. The FBI's special agent in charge brings in his old friend Joe Reeder who has already discerned this wasn't a robbery gone wrong; it was an assassination. Then another justice is brought down and suspicion falls on Reeder.
This is a nice little story and if there weren't so many implausibility's it would be a good buy. Unfortunately there is only so much suspension of belief possible before it becomes too jarring and ruins the narrative. If they'd dialed it back just a bit It might've been a four star work. Maybe it's just me but I can't give more than two.

Very Good story and great narration.
This was a very good book. I really liked Joe Reeder aka Peep. I like a good mystery, conspiracy story and this was one for sure.
The story line and plot was very good. Who is assassinating the Supreme Court Justices? Joe Reeder found out! I liked that it kept me guessing until the end.
I won't give any spoilers but this was a good one, I liked the writing and the story flowed very well it didn't get confusing at all, it was fast paced and entertaining,
As for the narration it was great, Dan John Miller did a really good job on the female voices and read with emotion, He has a very nice reading voice too. This was narrated in 2014 so I am sure he has gotten even better.
I have already started the next book in this series and am enjoying it already.
