#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - From celebrated political figure and bestselling author Stacey Abrams, While Justice Sleeps is a gripping, complexly plotted thriller set within the halls of the U.S. Supreme Court.

"A first-class legal thriller, favorably compared to many of the best, starting with The Pelican Brief, which it brings to mind. It\"s fast-paced and full of surprises--a terrific read. --Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent

Avery Keene, a brilliant young law clerk for the legendary Justice Howard Wynn, is doing her best to hold her strained personal life together. But when the shocking news breaks that Justice Wynn--the cantankerous swing vote on the court--has slipped into a coma, Avery\"s life turns upside down.

She learns that Wynn has appointed her to serve as his legal guardian and hold his power of attorney, plunging her into an explosive role she never anticipated. Avery finds that Justice Wynn had been secretly researching one of the most controversial cases before the court--a proposed merger between an American biotech company and an Indian genetics firm, which promises to unleash breathtaking results in the medical field. She also discovers that Wynn suspected a dangerous conspiracy was infiltrating the highest corridors of power in Washington.

As political wrangling intensifies to replace the ailing judge, Avery begins to unravel the carefully constructed, chess-like sequence of clues Wynn left behind for her. This labyrinthine puzzle, which immediately puts her in harm\"s way, may ultimately to a stunning truth.
