"Thirty seconds after the jury announced its verdict, I decided to kill my client." - Jake Lassiter
Lassiter believes that NFL superstar Thunder Thurston, murdered his wife. But the jury said "not guilty." A lawyer is supposed to let it go. Not Lassiter, who vows to become a vigilante.
His pals, squabbling law partners Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord, fear that all those concussions playing football caused the brain damage known as CTE. Can they stop Lassiter from becoming a murderer?
Will Dr. Melissa Gold, a neuropathologist, be able to halt his decline?
Or...is it game over for Lassiter's career and life?
