Martha "Marty" Nickerson, a Cape Cod district attorney turned defense lawyer, must defend a man who shot his son's presumed killer on live television. The only possible defense is insanity, but the grieving father refuses to say he was crazy when he pulled the trigger. In a seemingly unrelated case, a battered woman is held for the murder of her spouse, and all evidence points to her as the murderess. Now with two seemingly unwinnable murder cases on her slate, a losing verdict may be the least of her worries as Marty's harrowing hunt for the truth leads to shocking revelations and possible links that may put her in the sight line of a vengeful and all too capable killer.
