Private intelligence operative, Nick Heller is called in to help out in a delicate, potentially explosive situation. The chief justice of the Supreme Court is about to be defamed by a powerful gossip website called Slander Sheet, which specializes in dirt on celebs. In mere days they will publish an exposé documenting that the chief justice had liaisons with an escort, paid for by a wealthy casino mogul - who recently had a case before the court. Nick has forty-eight hours to prove the story is baseless. But when the call girl is found murdered, the case takes an unexpected and dangerous turn.
