Moved by the injustice inflicted on a missionary family in the Middle East, young hotshot attorney Brad Carson files an unprecedented civil-rights suit against Saudi Arabia and the ruthless head of the Muttawa, the Islamic Religious Police. The lawsuit unleashes powerful forces that will stop at nothing to vindicate the Arabian kingdom.
Now, as Brad navigates a maze of treachery and deceit, he must gamble his case, career, and the lives of those he loves - including his beautiful and talented co-counsel, Leslie Conners - on the ability of his team to bring justice to one family, challenge the religious intolerance of a nation, and alter the course of international law. He must find a way to accomplish this despite insurmountable odds.
