Maggie Lyon has longed to uncover a national scandal, but the dream of investigative journalism appears dead after spending years ghostwriting cookbooks. Returning to journalism, she lands in the Lifestyles section, churning out food articles until she's asked to cover an exclusive gathering at a mansion dating back to Hollywood's Golden Age. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Vittorio Scarpia, a polarizing national figure, is found dead in the mansion on Sunday morning! Authorities claim natural causes, and no one suspects otherwise until mysterious visitors, secret societies and induction ceremonies are reported.

It's clear to Maggie that Scarpia was murdered and several guests had motives. Suspects include the host, an attorney, politicians, an entrepreneur and the beautiful woman staying in the next bedroom.

Maggie investigates, arrests are made, but has she made a mistake? After reexamining the details, mysterious phone calls resume, old names resurface and a suspect dies before the killer is revealed!




About The Author
"Murdered Justice," Patrick Brown's latest novel, might seem like a departure from the format more familiar to his devoted readers. His many fans who frolicked figuratively with the outrageous behavior of Sheila Wozniak, the over-the-hill soap opera matron in "Tossed off the Edge" (2014), and the less than righteous antics of televangelists in "Moral Ambiguity" (2011) will be spellbound by his most recent political thriller. Spellbound and engrossed. Brown was classically trained as a keyboard artist for piano and organ but early found his true passion to be creative writing. At the tender age of nine, he was selected to join a creative writing class. His keen observational skills, scathing wit and sense of humor won him early honors and Patrick discovered his life's passion. Writing. As with most writers, Life's journey presented myriad opportunities for broadening his knowledge of human nature. He has been employed at various times as a church organist, a civil rights organizer, a political events coordinator and more recently as an environmentalist and amateur woodsman. With such an omnibus of skills and talents it does not surprise his fans that he has also delighted audiences as a stand-up comedian at the world-famous Comedy Store in Los Angeles, that famous venue which has launched so many notable careers. Storytelling comes natural to Brown whose ancestry includes a long line of storytellers, an art form unto itself throughout the South. His vivid imagination and fluid writing quickly enfold readers into the spell of any of his books they are fortunate enough to be reading. And, such is the case with this latest when Patrick's newest heroine, Maggie Lyon, is innocently drawn into the dangerous intrigue surrounding the murder of an esteemed, but dubious Supreme Court Justice.
