The Judge's history appears flawless, until a seemingly innocent statement turns out to be anything but. Suddenly Monk and agent Lisa Sands are propelled down a trail of corruption and murder that leads to the top of the government, to the very heart of the constitution, and to a face-off with a brutal killer.

"Full of high-tension, intrigue...a thriller that is good till the last page." --Michael Connelly, bestselling author of Lost Light and City of Bones
In Washington Politics
FBI agent Puller Monk's Special Inquiries (SPIN) team pulled what looked like an easy assignment: the background check of the highly respected first African American woman candidate for the Supreme Court. But what was supposed to be a routine turned into his worst nightmare when the lies surfaced -- and the bodies started to pile up.
Honesty Can Get You Killed
The President wants the candidate. Monk's boss wants results. An assassin wants to bury the truth. Suddenly, Monk and his agent Lisa Sands are caught in a deadly maze of lies and betrayal that leads them to corruption at the highest levels of government -- and a power-hungry killer who's gone too far to let them get in the way.
