內容簡介




《紐約時報》暢銷作家約翰.葛里遜又一司法驚悚力作。

該如何找出證據,將美國世上最腐敗的法官繩之以法?

一旦與邪惡集團正面對峙,危險是一回事,要命又是另一回事了。

年輕的Lacy Stoltz 從來沒有想到會親上火線!負責偵查佛羅里達州一千名法官是否涉及不當行為,對Lacy來說,所處理的都不是什麼罪大惡極的案件,直到她遇上了以假名Greg Myers執業的律師。此人代表一名吹哨者,聲稱手握一名法官的貪污證據,這個法官所貪的錢,大於美國所有法官貪汙金額的總和。

這個幕後的女法官所涉及的是個有組織的犯罪行為,藉由黑幫同夥之力,在印地安人保護區設立了一座了賭場,反對女法官這個計畫的,至少已有兩個人命喪黃泉。由賭場經營所獲得的不義之財,使得這個女法官在全球都擁有資產,可以搭著私人噴射機到她想去的任何地方,她的金庫裏堆滿了善本書、藝術作品與珠寶。

沒有人知道她到底幹了那些勾當,直到現在…

根據佛州律法,只要幫助政府打擊犯罪,便能得到罪犯擁有金額的一大部分。如此一來,Myers與他的吹哨者朋友,便可以大賺一筆。不過,他們首先得說服Lacy開啟調查。問題是,Lacy願意與美國史上最貪腐的法官和她的黑幫集團正面對峙嗎?



The most corrupt judge in US history.

A young investigator with a secret informant.

The electrifying new thriller.


Lacy Stoltz never expected to be in the firing line. Investigating judicial misconduct by Florida's one thousand judges, her cases so far have been relatively unexciting. That's until she meets Greg Myers, an indicted lawyer with an assumed name, who has an extraordinary tale to tell.

Myers is representing a whistle blower who knows of a judge involved in organised crime. Along with her gangster associates this judge has facilitated the building of a casino on an Indian reservation. At least two people who opposed the scheme are dead. Since the casino was built, the judge has made several fortunes off undeclared winnings. She owns property around the world, hires private jets to take her where she wishes, and her secret vaults are overflowing with rare books, art and jewels.

No one has a clue what she's been doing - until now.

Under Florida law, those who help the state recover illegally acquired assets stand to gain a large percentage of them. Myers and his whistle blower friend could make millions.

But first they need Lacy to start an investigation. Is she ready to pit herself against the most corrupt judge in American history, a judge whose associates think nothing of murder?
