In Supreme Court books, there is seldom the intrigue of murder and of crime and punishment within the chambers. The Curse of Sacerdozio takes the death of Justice Antonin Scalia on a fictional journey that keeps you turning pages. As President Trump takes power, this tale raises questions about what influences drive him in judicial appointments, while at the same time entertaining the reader in a political and legal thriller.
The issues of abortion, marriage, and the conduct of Supreme Court Justices wrapped in judicial conspiracy to control the Court and Congress come into stark conflict. The power of the church and motivated thinking highly organized pressure groups like the Federalist Society and Opus Dei are revealed in this plot driven novel.
While the story of the protagonist, Tommy Jon, is a success story within itself, as he is the first Jicarilla Apache to graduate from Harvard Law School and clerk for a Supreme Court Justice, his downfall is in contesting the judicial philosophy of Justice Sacerdozio. When the judge is found dead floating in a hot mineral pool on a ranch retreat in West Texas, Tommy Jon becomes a target of the FBI in suspicion of murder. The climax of the novel is his trial in the Federal District Court in El Paso.
Underlying the plot, the reader will realize a serious concern about just who President Trump really is. The political conspiracy that has brought the religious right and the judiciary together is unfolding and coming to fruition, now, in Washington. The Curse Of Sacerdozio is fictional in its tale but realistic in its revelations.

Excerpt from The Curse of Sacerdozio by Glen Aaron
“I was in DC last week working on one of my cases for a law firm there. It turned out that your clerk friend, Tim Bulgari, works for the firm, now. He told me what happened between you, Catherine Welch and the judge. But while I was talking to him, I asked him about the M44. Basically, he clammed up but claimed he knew nothing about it. He suddenly wouldn’t make eye contact. Does that sound strange to you?” Jacob asked.
“It does now. About a month ago, Bulgari asked me the same question that you asked me, ‘did I know what a M44 was?’ and I told him the same thing I told you. He said he had a close lawyer friend about to go to trial on a damage case involving a M44, and his friend needed one to use as an exhibit before the court and jury. Bulgari knew I was from the reservation, and when I told him that the game warden was a friend of our family, he asked if I could contact him and see if he could provide a M44 for this trial. I did that and the game warden said he would send it. I thought that was the end of that favor, and I didn’t think any more about it until I saw a M44 on the ground that night of the judge’s death. I immediately felt a gut wrenching suspicion that I had done wrong by ordering that M44. That even though I had dreamed of killing the judge, I had actually participated in his death.”
