While justice sleeps : a novel

Abrams, Stacey (author.).


Summary: Avery Keene, a law clerk for the legendary Justice Howard Wynn, is doing her best to excel in an arduous job with the court while also dealing with a troubled family. When the news breaks that Justice Wynn -- the cantankerous swing vote on many current high-profile cases -- has slipped into a coma, Avery is notified that Justice Wynn has left instructions for her to serve as his legal guardian and power of attorney. 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. She comes to see that Wynn had a personal stake in the controversial case -- and finding the truth will put Avery into harm's way. --
