The Fifth Letter Review - Page Turning Legal Thriller

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The Fifth Letter, a novel by research scholar Dr. Vivian Carpenter, introduces Katherine Helena Ross, the first black female Supreme Court justice caught between her conscience and political expedience when forced to consider the most important question facing the U.S. Supreme Court today: Who is a person with inalienable rights?

With an in-depth understanding of the consequences of Corporate Personhood to our nation, Dr. Carpenter points out the lethargy of the American people. "Americans are asleep on this important political issue that the Supreme Court created in 1819 without the president or the congress.

A dedicated researcher and scholar Carpenter believe her research suggests "the Supreme Court will be responsive to politics by the people; it's time to challenge the Supreme Court on this legal fiction."

The Fifth Letter, a novel, has the feel of a personalized account into contemporary Washington with its challenges, dealings and political landscape.

Former Senator Bob Graham said "Frequently political novels are a genre for truth telling. Dr. Vivian Carpenter's description of inside Washington rings true. The Fifth Letter takes us forward to a United States Supreme Court foreshadowed by the current court's personalities and political tilt. This novel will engage and educate readers."

The Fifth Letter is available for order via all major online retailers, including Amazon ($15.99 paperback;  $29.99 hardcover, $9.99 ebook)  or
