Summary: In suburban Georgetown a killer's Reeboks whispernbsp;on the front floor of a posh home... In a seedynbsp;D.C. porno house a patron is swiftlynbsp;garroted to death... The next day America learnsnbsp;nbsp;that two of its Supreme Court justices have beennbsp;assassinated. And in New Orleans, a young lawnbsp;student prepares a legal brief... To Darby Shaw it wasnbsp;nbsp;no more than a legal shot in the dark, a brilliantnbsp;nbsp;guess. To the Washington establishment it wasnbsp;nbsp;political dynamite. Suddenly Darby is witness to anbsp;murder -- a murder intended for her. Goingnbsp;nbsp;underground, she finds there is only one person she cannbsp;nbsp;trust -- an ambitious reporter after a newsbreaknbsp;nbsp;hotter than Watergate -- to help her piece together thenbsp;deadly puzzle. Somewhere between the bayous ofnbsp;nbsp;Louisiana and the White House's inner sanctums, anbsp;violent cover-up is being engineered. For somone hasnbsp;read Darby's brief. Someone who will stop atnbsp;nothing to destroy the evidence of an unthinkablenbsp;crime.
