The evidence of his guilt is overwhelming.Powerful forces in politically conservative Orange County are mobilized against McCauley, a maverick with a well-documented history of taking action into his own hands. A scandal-plagued sheriff, a career-driven district attorney, and a corrupt cop conspire to bring McCauley down.McCauleys life becomes a nightmare as he seeks to prove his innocence and save his life and his law practice. He enlists the aid of a savvy former cop and a beautiful, former prosecutor. The defense team must unravel a mosaic of corrupt judges, crooked politicians, and the power brokers who control them to prevent McCauley from facing the death penalty. They have a few hopes to solve the case, but no guarantees.As McCauleys defense team maneuvers to protect him and his reputation, a not-guilty verdict is not enough. They intend to uncover the plot and prosecute the real culprit. But the killer has struck before, and theres nothing to stop him now.
