Synopsis:  Landing a prestigious position as a Supreme Court clerk fresh out of Yale Law, Ben Addison is on the ultra-fast track to success—until he inadvertently shares a classified secret with the wrong listener. And now the anonymous blackmailer who made a killing with Ben's information is demanding more. Guilty of a criminal act, his golden future suddenly in jeopardy, Ben turns for help to his roommates—three close friends from childhood, each strategically placed near the seats of Washington power—and to his beautiful, whip-smart fellow clerk, Lisa Schulman. But trust is a dangerous commodity in the nation's capital. And when lives, careers, and power are at stake, loyalties can shatter like glass . . . and betrayals can be lethal.

Review:  This book was exciting.  It was also laugh-out-loud funny in places.  The characters are really wonderful.  I've been wanting to read this book, but I didn't have a copy.  Thankfully, I was lent this copy right after Christmas and I knew it'd be my first read of 2017.  It's been on my 'I Really Want To Read This Book' list for far too long!

It was a great first choice!  It was fast paced, impossible to put down, and just plain good.  Best of all?  I had no idea whodunit until the bitter end.  I completely loved it.

Rating:  10 / 10
