**Stop by tomorrow for an interview with Ronald S. Barak**



That’s the text message Supreme Court Justice Arnold Hirschfeld receives as hearings commence in the U.S. Supreme Court to determine the fate of the 28th Amendment – enacted to criminalize abuse of power on the part of our political representatives.

In court to defend the amendment, retired U.S. District Court Judge Cyrus Brooks observes his old friend and law school classmate Hirschfeld acting strangely and dispatches veteran D.C. homicide detective Frank Lotello to find out why.

In the meantime, Hirschfeld’s precocious and feisty 11-year-old diabetic granddaughter Cassie, brutally kidnapped to control her grandfather’s swing vote upholding or invalidating the amendment, watches her insulin pump running dry and wonders which poses her greatest threat, the kidnappers or the clock. As Brooks is forced to choose between saving our nation or saving the girl.

My Thoughts

Phenomenal! Absolutely one of the best books I have read in 2017!

An author once told me that an author should hook the reader within the first 15-30 pages. But when the first few sentences start with “WE HAVE YOUR GRANDDAUGHTER. HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.”, will the next 500+ pages keep your interest?

This book was exceptionally written. The story and suspense never waivered! It was told with such realism and description that the imagery I created felt like I was watching a movie. A riveting read that had me on the edge of my seat!

If you are a John Grisham fan, then this book is for you!! Extraordinary!

In my opinion, this book would make for a blockbuster movie!

The ending! The ending had me gasping! And wanting more! I can’t wait to see what Mr. Barak has in store for the future. I just hope its soon!!!

To answer my question, did the next 500+ pages keep my interest? Hell yes! I had trouble putting this book down!

Highly, highly recommend!
