The Pelican Brief

The Pelican Brief
By John Grisham
(2999-CD) 9 compact Discs
Read by Alexander Adams

Late one October night, Justice Abe Rosenberg, at 91 the Supreme Court's liberal legend, is gunned down in his Georgetown home. Two hours later Myron Jensen, the court's youngest and most conservative justice, is strangled.  The country is stunned.  The FBI has no clues.

But Darby Shaw, a brilliant young law student and Tulane University, thinks she has the answer, She prepares a meticulous though very speculative brief that builds a strong case against a surprise suspect --  a suspect with very powerful friends who want Darby and "the pelican brief" she wrote out of the way for good!

"Takes suspense past the legal limit." (The New York Times)
