Chicanery on the Supreme Court is a hot topic these days. Brad Meltzer's Tenth Justice made bestseller headlines, and by now there are nearly enough other thrillers probing the secrets of the federal bench to give the subject a category all its own. In 9 Scorpions, former trial attorney Paul Levine weighs in with his version. The book features a beautiful ex-stripper with a Stanford law degree who's just won a coveted clerkship with the most junior justice--handsome and charismatic Sam Truitt. Lisa Fremont has come a long way from San Francisco's seedy Tiki Club, thanks to a wealthy patron who's also the CEO of Atlantica Airlines. But Max Wanaker and his airline are facing a multi-million dollar legal battle that will be won or lost in the high court, and Max is calling in his markers. It's up to Lisa to persuade Sam Truitt to cast the swing vote in Atlantica's favor. Max's life, and hers, hang in the balance, for Max has sold his soul as well as his airline to a corporation owned by the Japanese mafia, and the Yakuza's strongman, Shank, has already killed once to protect the their interests. If Lisa's considerable legal skills or even her sensual talents can't convince the justice to see things the mafia way, Shank'll kill again. But what neither the mafia nor Max know is that it's not just Lisa's passion for justice that stands in the way of their plans. When she learns what really brought Flight 640 down and killed her one true love as well as 288 other people, a not-so-simple case of blackmail turns into a deadly battle of will and wits. The action ranges from the marble halls of the Court to the swamps of the Everglades, where most of the bodies and all of the secrets of Atlantica 640 are buried. Or are they? When Truitt joins forces with Lisa to uncover the truth, they learn that even the federal bench isn't immune to the forces of corruption and violence, in a thrilling denouement that reads like a blockbuster movie. --Jane Adams

Kurzbeschreibung

IMPACT: NO. 1 BESTSELLING HARD-BOILED MYSTERY

A Jetliner Crashes in the Everglades.
A Billion-Dollar Lawsuit: Negligence or Terrorism?
The Defense: Kill Anyone, Even a Supreme Court Justice, to Win the Case.


Supreme Court Justice Sam Truitt takes the bench with high ideals, lofty intentions...and a troubled marriage. Lisa Fremont, his stunning and brilliant law clerk, has a dark secret in her past. If Lisa doesn't get Truitt's vote in multi-million dollar case involving a catastrophic airplane crash, she'll be killed. The Justice, too. IMPACT is a tale of seduction and betrayal, of passion and greed. Truitt, who has always followed the rules, and Lisa, who never has, join together to battle those who live by no law at all.

IMPACT, published in hardcover as "9 Scorpions," was the inspiration for "First Monday," the television drama starring James Garner and Joe Mantegna.

3.0 von 5 Sternen 9 Scorpions requires a suspension of belief 9. November 1998
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Not even in Bill Clinton's Washington does this story line make sense, and more's the pity as I am a big Paul Levine fan. Sam Truitt who has already been burned as a college professor by sleeping with a co-ed and then giving her a C grade, ("Next time Sam, give her an A and spare me the embarrassment", says his wife) is confirmed as a Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. He has hardly had a chance to try out his chair when the Chief, a fire breathing "right wing conservative" advises that he is just waiting for Sam to give his followers a chance to remove him. So, against that background Sam hires the sexiest ex-stripper ever to graduate from Stanford as one of his law clerks. However, she is a double agent as she has been put up to applying to be the judge's law clerk by the President of Atlantica Airlines (Max). He is the guy who rescued her from her life of sin while making her his mistress. Then, during a down period in that relationship, she was falling in love with and sleeping with the Chief Pilot of Atlantica (Tony). Unfortunately, Tony the Pilot is at the controls of Flight 610 when the tail engine disintegrates and the plane crashes in The Everglades with all lives lost. A law suit is brought against the company. It's insurance company is insolvent so the airline will have to pay the damages, if any are awarded. Lisa, the law clerk, is convinced by her former lover that there was a terrorist bomb on the plane and getting "her Justice" to vote for the airline is the right thing to do.(It really was lousy maintainance) Sound complicated?? You bet. Believable?? No way!! Lesen Sie weiter... ›

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding! One of this year's best novels. 25. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A Paul Levine novel without Jake Lassiter? With seven novels on bookstore shelves featuring the linebacker-turned-lawyer, author Paul Levine shows readers his exceptional skills at weaving an intricate plot, sprinkling it with a wonderful sense of humor, blending in a touch of wit and showering it with scenery. In his newest novel, "9 Scorpions" he has excelled at all of that, this time without Jake. As the book opens on a perfect starlit South Florida night, Atlantica Airlines flight 640 crashes into the Everglades, killing everyone aboard and sparking a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the airline. Three years later, with the suit about the reach the United States Supreme Court, Max Wanaker, CEO of Atlantica, has devised a plan to save his airline from financial ruin, using his protege and former mistress, Lisa Freemont, newly appointed law clerk to the Supreme Court with a dark past. Max first met Lisa when she was an underage stripper. He put her through school and now he wants her to repay the favor by seducing junior Supreme Court Justice Sam Truitt and convince him to vote in favor of the airline. The plan sounds simple enough. After all, does anyone really think that all judges and lawyers are honest? But, there are much more powerful forces to reckon with than Max. An unsavory character named Theodore Shakanian, aka Shank, is the muscle man sent by Max's financial backers, to whom he owes a fortune, to make sure things go as planned. To further complicate matters, Lisa was in love with Tony Kingston, the pilot of flight 640. She has maintained her friendship with Tony's son, Greg, and together they set out to prove it was shoddy maintenance and sloppy cost-cutting measures by Max's company that cost the crew and passengers of flight 640 their lives.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good thriller 14. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Sam Truitt is a rarity in today's Washington. He is an idealist, who wants only to the right thing as the newest member of the Supreme Court. In spite of his good intentions, Sam selects Lisa Fremont, a sexy young lady, to be one of his law clerks because he cannot resist her sexual magnetism.
Lisa Fremont has a history that, if known, would probably disqualify her from working at the court. She was a teenage stripper in San Francisco, whose life was changed when Max Wanaker, president of Atlantica Airlines, took her off the streets and sent her tuition free to Stanford.
Max needs a favor from his star pupil. His airlines is in the midst of a multimillion dollar law suit that is going to come before the justices of the Supreme Court. The judges are evenly divided with Sam being the lone undecided and therefore swing vote. Lisa is to get into his bed and head (both of them) to insure that Max is paid in full.
9 SCORPIONS is an exciting legal th! ! riller that brings one of the justices of the Supreme Court into full focus. The book is at its best when it does that, and when it presents the inner sanctum and procedures of the court. Though fans of legal thrillers will want to read this fast-paced novel, the book becomes another run of the mill thriller when Sam and Lisa become the last action heroes and go on location to right a wrong. Paul Levine shows he has talent and hopefully will return to the highest court, but this time stay with the bench and provide readers with insight into all 9 SCORPIONS, who sit in its chambers.

We found the book to be formula in nature, can you imagine a supreme court judge, already guilty of sexual harassment hiring another bimbo! Evil bad guys, but just not believable. Lesen Sie weiter...
