The author of Capitol Hill and CIA: The Inside Story has written the first novel to take the reader inside the Supreme Court.The time is the near future. Washington vibrates with rumor, intrigue and political in-fighting as the country is shaken by race riots, labor unrest and international crises. A young, dynamic President, who has been swept into office by a tide of conservative feeling, is determined to take swift action. But he is blocked -- overruled again and again -- by the Supreme Court. Frustrated and angry, he attempts to "pack" the court.
The duel that follows rages in the press and on television across the nation, and in the social and political inner sanctums of the Capitol. It is played out, too, in the conflicting loyalties of the man who is in a position to break the deadlock. He is Associate Justice Francis Copley Dalton, the youngest, the most colorful and the most controversial man on the Supreme Court. At stake for him: his longtime close friendship for the President who appointed him, his integrity as a supporter of the Constitution and of civil liberties, and his love affair with a famous actress whose ex-husband threatens a scandal that could ruin Dalton and heap indignity on the Court itself. As political and personal pressure mount, Justice Dalton finds himself forced to make the most important decision of his life.
Supreme Court is the story of a man of conscience caught in the complex machinery of the democratic process. It is, as well, a fascinating and knowing look at the tensions and pressures, the powers, personalities and politics behind the scenes of the country's highest tribunal.
