Part Three of the serial conspiracy thriller that will shake America to its core.
It is December, and a bloody year in America draws to a close, a year in which the Supreme Court was decimated by six bombs, claiming the lives of four of the Justices.
As winter falls on rural Michigan, Supreme Court policeman Jason Lancaster believes he’s even closer to finding his missing fiancée Miranda Whitney, if he can just figure out the location of the secret compound of one of America’s most organized militias, the Michigan Minutemen. As he waits for a lead, his memories drift back to his first meeting with Miranda, and the clues she dropped even then to her deepest secrets.
In Washington DC, beloved appeals Judge Isaac Goldman seems well on his way to confirmation as the second replacement Justice, when a Senator on the Judiciary Committee obtains an interview with one of his former clerks claiming his wife left him because of his addiction to marijuana. Can Rosemarie Irving salvage yet another nomination?
Part legal potboiler, part HOUSE OF CARDS dealmaking drama, part 24-esque espionage cliffhanger, FOUR SEATS is an enthralling new entry to the conspiracy thriller tradition.
“Cooley delivers again. A riveting political thriller that is somehow educational and page-turning at the same time. I didn’t know I could care this much about the appointment of judges, but Cooley took me there.”
– Dave Callaham, Screenwriter of GODZILLA and THE EXPENDABLES
“With FOUR SEATS, Aaron Cooley has softly, slyly and deservedly taken his seat beside Parker, Child, DeMille and Grisham and in the process has introduced us to a protagonist with just enough flaw to be honorably relatable and just enough hero to be vastly readable.”
– Patrick MacManus, Writer & Co-Executive Producer,
Netflix’s MARCO POLO
“Cooley writes with knowledge and skill about a shadowy world few truly understand… at times richly emotional, hilarious, and challenging… bears the hard weight of both a political and personal mystery that demands we all ultimately consider where we are, and what comes next.”
– Eric Lodal, Creator/Executive Producer, TNT’s MURDER IN THE FIRST
“I was sucked in on page one, riveted on page 12, and a full-fledged Aaron Cooley fan club member by page 37. I would say this book had me on the edge of my seat, but I happened to be lying down while reading it. This has the makings of a classic, will surely be on the small screen at some point, and I can’t wait to watch it when it gets there. If you read one book before you die, you should probably read the bible. But if you have time for two, read FOUR SEATS by Aaron Cooley.”
– Jeremy Garelick, Writer-Director of THE WEDDING RINGER
