'The Outsider' by Anthony Franze is a satisfying mystery

A law student seeking employment after graduation lands in a conspiracy inside the U.S. Supreme Court in "The Outsider," Anthony Franze's latest legal thriller.

Grayson Hernandez gets a job with the court, but it's in the mailroom. He listens to the various clerks discuss the cases and dreams of one day being in their company as an equal. One evening while heading home, he witnesses a mugging in the parking garage and intervenes. He ends up stopping the attack and saving the victim, who happens to be the Chief Justice of the United States. As a thank you, the head of the Supreme Court appoints him as a law clerk.

His happiness is short-lived, however, when FBI Special Agent Emma Milstein approaches him and asks for help. The case she's investigating involves murder that may be connected to the Supreme Court. She wants him to be an informant, and he reluctantly agrees. As he secretly begins investigating his fellow law clerks and the justices, he soon realizes that everything seems to be pointing at him being the one the FBI is seeking.

Descriptions of the law and how the Supreme Court operates are engaging, and Franze knows how to showcase the ins and outs of that world without diving into too much legalese.

Readers unfamiliar with elements of the justice system will still find this a satisfying mystery. It's like a mix of John Grisham and Scott Turow alongside the inner workings of the court system. Toss it all together and the end result is this winning novel. ___

'Vicious Cycle' by C.J. Box rings with emotional resonance

Decisions that Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett has made to protect his family come back to haunt him in "Vicious Circle," a stellar installment in C.J. Box's ongoing series.

As the count of stories featuring Pickett and his family grow, so do their lives. All of the children are out of the house, so when trouble comes back to town, Pickett can't be in several places at once to insure their safety. His daughter April had run away with a rodeo champion, and she ended up being savagely beaten and left for dead. The boyfriend, Dallas Cates, was imprisoned, but he's now out and seeking revenge. When one of Pickett's good friends overhears Cates and others talking about hurting Pickett, he tries to warn him, but is killed before he can say anything. Then someone wearing April's jacket is attacked with a knife and almost dies.

Pickett knows Cates is responsible, but since Cates has an alibi for every incident, he can continue to plot the ultimate destruction of the warden and his family. Pickett has to use the law and allies to keep his family alive.

Box utilizes the wild and open spaces of Wyoming to create a brooding atmosphere that's as intense as the story line. Readers both new and old will enjoy figuring out with Pickett how to stop an unstoppable villain while keeping intact everything that he holds dear.

There's a reason why Box is consistently at the top of the best-seller lists: He writes a compelling tale that also rings with emotional resonance.
