the brethren

of John Grisham, one of my favourites.

Three former judges (known as “The Brethren”) incarcerated at Trumble, a fictional, federal minimum security prison, develop a scam to blackmail wealthy closeted gay men. With the help of their lawyer, Trevor Carson, they transfer their ill-gotten money to a secret bank account.

Meanwhile, Teddy Maynard, the ruthless and soon-to-retire director of the CIA, is orchestrating a scheme to control the USA presidential election. Aaron Lake, a strongly pro-defense expenditure candidate has been identified and Maynard is determined to control him – and then get him elected.

A fantastic book totally recommendable; what I don’t understand is why this one has not been turned into a movie yet!
