From the back cover: "The six-year-old by was abducted from a campground...his body was found in the woods many miles away...Cause of Death: a single stab wound to the chest.
The case is international dynamite. The victim is the son of a Russian diplomat. The accused killer, T.J. Justice, is a convicted child molester. For prosecutor Gardner Lawson this could be easy pickings, were he not pitted against his archenemy: notoriously vicious defense attorney Kent King.
As King mounts a venomous defensive attack, Gardner vows triumph-only to confront a twisted trail of strange clues and conflicting evidence. Driven by revenge and ambition, Gardner will not be deterred. Despite doubts and misgivings, he plunges headlong into an increasingly mysterious case he cannot seem to win...against a ruthless adversary who seeks victory inside the courtroom-and out-no matter the cost."
