The year is 1980. Three struggling, ambitious young lawyers set up their own practice. Partner Carrie Barr, fresh from her success defending a drifter charged as the notorious Midnight Strangler, takes on the case of a suave hit man who proves to be far more dangerous — and alluring — than she imagined. Carrie finds herself drawn into a web of terror; a rogue police operation, a ruthless drug lord, and a series of brutal murders threaten to tear apart their fledgling firm. Meanwhile, the Midnight Strangler is still at large. Has he chosen Carrie as his next victim?
