Law and courtroom stories usually put me to sleep, but I have to say that I got into this pretty good. It sort of reminded me of The Chamber if only because a relative defends another.

Ex-federal prosecutor Michael Ryan has been estranged from his 27-year-old son Ned for 3 years when Ned is murdered. His daughter-in-law, wealthy socialite Jennifer Kneeland Ryan, has been indicted for the crime--Ned was bludgeoned to death in the private room of a Soho art gallery. Jennifer insists she's innocent and begs her father-in-law to defend her. Ryan wants to believe she's guilty, to bury his grief for the son he hardly knew and get on with his life, but he can't turn her away. He agrees to take the case.
Teetering on an emotional precipice himself, Michael Ryan dusts off his rusty legal skills to lead the defense in the most sensatinal New York murder trial in decades. And as his ambivalence about Jennifer intensifies, as the painful truth about his son's life begins to emerge, Ryan realizes that his own life is also on trial--as a father, as a lawyer, and as a man.
