Here’s a book genre we never knew we needed: the Supreme Court thriller.
In May, Doubleday will be publishing While Justice Sleeps, a novel by Stacey Abrams about the Supreme Court. It centers on a law clerk who learns of corruption that “infiltrates the highest power corridors of Washington.” Imagine that!
Abrams, who released a memoir in 2018 about her career advocating for voting rights and her gubernatorial run in Georgia, described the book as the story of “what happens when a lowly law clerk controls the fate of a nation.” She has also penned romance novels using the pseudonym Selena Montgomery.
This novel, which she began drafting a decade ago, is an expansion of that work, she said in a statement: “As an avid consumer of legal suspense novels and political thrillers, I am excited to add my voice into the mix.”
