David Compton captured the attention of reviewers and instantly established himself as a first-rate thriller writer with his first novel Executive Sanction. In Impaired Judgment, Compton delivers a complex and clever tale of judicial corruption, mob bosses, and political scandal that seizes the imagination and is sure to leave readers breathless. Paula Candler, a Federal judge in Alexandria, Virginia, has landed one of the most controversial cases of the year-the sensational trial of Tony Remalli, a reputed member of the mafia accused of murdering a judge. With critical evidence amassed by the FBI, the prosecution's case is solid. Enter the defense attorney, Don Russ, a ruthless, corrupt lawyer who will stop at nothing to get a not-guilty verdict-even if it means blackmailing the judge. But when the judge-Paula Candler-also happens to be the First Lady of the United States, there's more at stake than just a criminal's freedom. An entire administration is in jeopardy, due to an shocking secret in the First Lady's past, a secret that the defense attorney has just uncovered. With Impaired Judgment, David Compton has written a thriller that crosses genres and more than lives up to the promise of his previous book. "A scary and cautionary tale of conspiracy in very high places."-James Patterson on Executive Sanction "A thriller with layers of suspense, unrestrained tension, and a wicked plot."-John Grisham on Executive Sanction
