They call themselves The Brethren: three disgraced former judges doing time in a Florida federal prison.  One was sent down for tax evasion.  Another, for skimming bingo profits.  The third, for a career-ending drunken joyride.  Meeting daily in the prison library, taking exercise walks in their boxer shorts, these judges-turned-felons can reminisce about old court cases, dispense a little jailhouse justice, and contemplate where their lives went wrong.

Or they can use their time in prison to get very rich- very fast.

And so they sit, sprawled in the prison library, furiously writing letters, fine-tuning a wickedly brilliant extortion scam....while events outside their prison walls begin to erupt.  A bizarre presidential election is holding the nation in its grip- and a powerful government figure is pulling some very hidden strings.  For the Brethren, the timing couldn't be better.

Because they've just found the perfect victim....
