About the Author

Robin Peguero spent seven years storytelling to juries for a living, most recently as a homicide prosecutor in Miami. An Afro-Latino and the son of immigrants, he graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Law School. He has written for the Miami Herald, the Harvard Crimson, and the Harvard Law Review, and he served as a press spokesman in the U.S. House, a speechwriter in the U.S. Senate before becoming a lawyer, and an investigative counsel on the House Select Committee Investigating the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol. He is currently Chief of Staff to a member of Congress.


"One in the Chamber is a wild, wickedly fun ride! Robin Peguero's latest delivers a smart thriller-mystery while also turning a satirical eye on Capitol Hill culture and the twenty-somethings that underpin it, ricocheting among their desires for power, friendship, love, sex, and vengeance. I devoured this book!"--Shelby Van Pelt, New York Times bestselling author of "Remarkably Bright Creatures"
"One in the Chamber is a snarky, vicious political mystery of my dreams, a perfect mix of gossily DC intrigue and high-minded political and legal ideas. If The West Wing was set in Capitol Hill and featured a diverse cohort of brilliant but troubled junior staffers - and made you want to burn down the republic - that's One in the Chamber. The final shocking chapter had me reeling and thinking for days. A brave, gripping, and provocative book." --Ashley Winstead, author of "Midnight is the Darkest Hour"
Praise for With Prejudice
"With Prejudice is a brilliant debut, full stop. Written with warmth, humanity, and raw emotion, this is both a gripping thriller and an insightful look at the complexities of American crime and punishment."--Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of I Will Find You and The Match
"Robin Peguero's With Prejudice is an outstanding courtroom thriller, told with an engaging focus on the jury room. Peguero's inside knowledge of the legal system brings an air of authenticity to every page. Highly recommended!"--Scott Turow, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Presumed Innocent and The Last Trial
"One of the best legal thrillers I've ever read. Tense, exciting, and full of twists and turns, with fascinating insights into the intricate workings of the courtroom. With Prejudice is a deeply human story that reveals all the ways that justice isn't blind. It sees through many eyes."--Joe Ide, author of IQ and Smoke
"With Prejudice is a fast, entertaining courtroom drama by an author who knows the ins and outs of the justice system. Peguero employs both his legal expertise and authorial sleight of hand to throw down twists and turns you will not see coming."--Steph Cha, author of Your House Will Pay
