In the history of the United States, only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five. His body is found in his lakeside cabin. There is no forced entry or struggle. Just two dead bodies, Judge Fawcett and his young secretary. And one large, state-of-the-art extremely secure safe, opened and emptied. One man, a former attorney, knows who killed Judge Fawcett, and why. But that man, Malcolm Bannister, is currently residing in the Federal Prison Camp near Frostburg, Maryland. Though serving time, Malcolm has an ace up his sleeve. He has information the FBI would love to know. Malcolm would love to tell them. But everything has a price--and the man known as the Racketeer wasn't born yesterday.

First published in 2012



Work Description

When a federal judge and his secretary fail to appear for a scheduled trial and panicked clerks call for an FBI investigation, a harrowing murder case ensues and culminates in the imprisonment of a lawyer who imparts the story of who killed the judge and why.

"... El cadáver del juez fue hallado en su cabaña a la orilla de un lago. La entrada no había sido forzada. Lo único que encontraron fueron dos cuerpos sin vida: el del juez y el de su joven secretaria. Y otra cosa: una caja fuerte grande, el modelo más moderno y más seguro, abierta y vacía. Y ¿qué había en la caja fuerte? Al FBI le encantaría saberlo, y a Malcolm Bannister, contarlo. Pero todo tiene su precio, sobre todo una información tan valiosa como esta, y el estafador no tiene un pelo de tonto." -- page 4 of cover.
