That is the meaning of the Judges of the Secret Court. No matter what we do, they are always there. David Stacton's "Judges of the Secret Court" is a special book. He died in 1968, at the age of forty-four, when he was just getting started.

Because who were The Judges of the Secret Court? .

Because who were The Judges of the Secret Court? Not the tribunal, we learn: for it is the bystander who had to live with the crime, not the criminal. They know, inherently, that the world will not allow it. "Judges of the Secret Court" is superior historical fiction, set around the assassination of Lincoln, the flight and eventual death of John Wilkes Booth (hopefully that is not a spoiler!) and the aftermath of the kangaroo court set up to try and execute his accused conspirators for political gain. Lincoln himself, not beloved by either the North OR the South after the War, would become a martyr and forever lionized by the events Booth set in motion.

Far more than just "a novel about John Wilkes Booth," The Judges of the Secret Court - haunting title - depicts the complex aftershock of the Lincoln assassination on a surprisingly large circle of people, including the various conspirators, the famous Booth family of actors and th. .

Far more than just "a novel about John Wilkes Booth," The Judges of the Secret Court - haunting title - depicts the complex aftershock of the Lincoln assassination on a surprisingly large circle of people, including the various conspirators, the famous Booth family of actors and the Washington politicos who seize on the death of the president for their own purposes. What most surprises about. this "historical" novel is its urbane, mildly epigrammatic style. Stacton is never florid or old-fashioned.

He was at the Bowling Green hotel, a large, deserted-looking building which only made these knocks on the door the louder and more ominous. He listened alertly, and heard voices. He listened alertly, and heard voices at they said, but he recognized the feminine voice of his hostess. The other voices sounded Northern. He looked towards the other bed, as he heard boots on the stairs. Mrs. Goldman’s son was in the other bed. He was badly wounded, but he was awake. He had been one of the last casualties of this endless war. There was a knock at the door. Willie, will you come to the door?.

In a radical departure from his previous books, Joe Giglio uses the techniques of popular fiction to dramatize how America s transportation system can be transformed into a vigorous engine for economic growth and to make clear that our ability to meet the challenges of an increasingly competitive global economy depend on this transformation. The book recounts the conversations of two brilliant but self-confessed rogues: a disgraced journalist from Bedford-Stuyvesant trying to rehabilitate his career, and a Wall Street star and Talmudic scholar in prison for Securities Fraud. They explore how the Scarlet Woman of Capitalism can be seduced into financing and managing transportation systems that make money while providing better mobility for the American public. They suggest how government officials can control this process by remembering that saints don t always have to be dumber than sinners. And they look at how a generally clueless public (and its elected representatives) can be conned into acting responsibly for a change to assure the country a prosperous future . Funny, irreverent, and clear-eyed, the book gives today s savvy readers a refreshing dose of real-world insights into creating a New Covenant on transportation between the federal government, state and local governments, and private enterprise that will not simply repair a broken transportation system, but will turn it into a crucial generator of economic growth.

In "Judges of the Secret Court" (2008), author Joe Giglio gently coaxes his reader to examine their own ideas related to economic and social conditions facing society today. He does this by discarding the typical didactic writing style most commonly used with this subject matter. Instead, Dr. Giglio uses the vehicle of fiction to deliver believable characters who carry the reader along as they explore issues in a thought-provoking and sometimes moving way.

The story opens with reporter Wesley Graham driving into federal prison for his first interview with convicted insider trader Elijah Stern. As Wes begins to interview Elijah, he finds himself at various times challenged, outraged and/or intrigued with the ideas put forth by the older man. Between interviews Wes grapples with the new perspectives that begin to challenge his previously accepted views. Wes offers challenges or arguments to Elijah that often reflect the readers own struggle.

The author, a well-respected expert on infrastructure, deserves recognition as one of the most forward-thinking intellectuals of our time. In this book, however, he sets aside ivory-tower language and walks with the common man, using his characters to make difficult material easy to understand. In doing so, Professor Giglio reveals that not only does he understand the problems of today, he also shows that he cares

Judges of the Secret Court is a fast-paced fiction novel that looks at ideas about transforming America's transportation system. This novel keeps you reading as you learn of the complex transportation finance plan that landed the main character, Jacob Cohen, in federal prison. As you read you learn more details of the plan of these experienced and educated characters. The book's context puts in laymen's terms a subject that is very difficult to understand, unless you are an expert in the field of transportation. Anyone even slightly interested in transportation, government policy, or Wall Street will find this novel a great read and it will be hard to put down.

Joe Giglio has taken a subject that most of us take for granted and turned it into a compelling and fascinating story of intellectual hairpin turns. He unfolds a complex roadmap and leaves you wondering if it can ever be folded back. You'll never look at the road ahead of you the same way again. Ever.

Judges of the Secret Court brings the problems facing the United States infrastructure system into perspective. The author has his two main characters discuss what could be a very boring treatise on the funding tools used to finance our transportation systems and the ensuing pitfalls into a very readable novel. The two characters are two disgraced New Yorkers, one an African American the other a Jewish American. One is a disgraced journalist the other a former successful Wall Street investment banker who is now serving time in a federal prison for corruption. The two develop a relationship that results in a fascinating journey that is both entertaining and dare I say, educational. Joseph Giglio has written a book that is as timely as today's New York Times.
