In suburban Georgetown a killer's Reeboks whisper on the front floor of a posh home... In a seedy D.C. porno house a patron is swiftly garroted to death... The next day America learns  that two of its Supreme Court justices have been assassinated. And in New Orleans, a young law student prepares a legal brief... To Darby Shaw it was  no more than a legal shot in the dark, a brilliant  guess. To the Washington establishment it was  political dynamite. Suddenly Darby is witness to a murder -- a murder intended for her. Going  underground, she finds there is only one person she can  trust -- an ambitious reporter after a newsbreak  hotter than Watergate -- to help her piece together the deadly puzzle. Somewhere between the bayous of  Louisiana and the White House's inner sanctums, a violent cover-up is being engineered. For somone has read Darby's brief. Someone who will stop at nothing to destroy the evidence of an unthinkable crime.

4.0 The Pelican Brief
I haven't read this one in at least a decade, and I was happy at how well it stood up. Dated, of course, although not quite as badly as I expected.

Jeśli myślicie, że wszyscy już widzieli film „Raport Pelikana” i czytanie książki, na podstawie której go nakręcono, może być podyktowane jedynie jakąś chorą fanaberią – mylicie się, oj, jak bardzo się mylicie. Istnieję bowiem ja – niespodzianka ustrojowa! ;) Klika słów z myślą o osobach, którym -...

5.0 Raport pelikana
Jedna z niewielu książek, która spodobała mi się mimo, że wcześniej obejrzałam film. Czyta się przyjemnie i lekko. Ciekawa akcja i trzyma w napięciu do końca, zwłaszcza jeżeli nie widziało się wcześniej filmu.
