Darren Fletcher and Issabella Bright don't mingle and gossip with the other lawyers around town. The criminal attorneys might be a bit mismatched, but they fight to win and always stand by each other. Their latest case involves a retired Supreme Court Judge: his nephew's been murdered on his private island. He needs someone who'll put ethics aside to protect him and find the cold-blooded killer. Judge Prosner is hiding a sinister secret. And that he's more concerned about protecting his sterling reputation over seeing his nephew's killer is prosecuted. As they chase a sword-wielding killer across Michigan, they both find they must answer a question: what if the murderer they're hounding is the one person they genuinely want to help?
