Started strong. Became a bit to explanatory in the middle. And certain phrase were repeated too frequently by Avery for mere grandiosity and I’ll placed emphasis. Like one liners for mic drops. Became a bit tedious

Stacey Abrams is brilliant, though this books functions at a higher level than my comprehension. I’m not sure if I lacked full understanding due to my limited understanding of the American Supreme Court, the different government agencies, or just her vocabulary. I found this thriller fun but maybe only understood 75-90% of it and why I gave it 3.5 stars.

Great Thriller- unbelievable, but a great story with some good legalese in it. Stacy Abrams is quite amazing.

This book is a great mystery. Unrealistic, but as for the protagonist SUPERWOMAN. How Stacy Abrams explains the Supreme Court and the machinations of evil within the different branches of government- evil Capitalists. Abrams can tell a good yarn!
