Description

This legal thriller follows the lives of three young, ambitious lawyers in 1980 as they are setting up their own practice. The fledgling firm is rocked when partner Carrie Barr, the successful legal defense of the notorious Midnight Strangler, takes on the case of a suave, handsome accused hit man. The new client proves far more dangerous—and alluring—than she imagined, and soon she is drawn into a web of terror involving a rogue police operation, a ruthless drug lord, and a series of brutal murders that threatens to destroy the firm. A breathtaking courtroom scene dramatically rounds out this fast-paced mystery.
