Attorney David Winter kicks back on the Florida beach, soaking in the sunshine and watching the ladies stroll by. When his old Army buddy, Sean, asks him to defend his aunt in a murder case, David doesn’t think twice and leaves the sun and sand for Missouri’s ice and snow to help his old pal. Seems Aunt Sharon’s pastime was killing husbands and getting rich off their insurance policies. Not even Sean’s generosity - a BMW 528i with chauffeur, 100 grand plus expenses, and a luxury apartment - all at David’s disposal - can save Aunt Sharon from the needle!
The more David investigates, the more accomplices keep coming out of the woodwork. When he’s shot, drugged, and hit over the head, David takes it personally - but that’s only the tip of the proverbial iceberg! He faces a startling truth, which nearly destroys him and his faith in all he holds dear. But lady justice isn’t blind and forgiving of those who shake her scales. As an instrument of law, David must once again become the hardened soldier honed on the battlefields of Vietnam and stand toe-to-toe with unscrupulous prosecutors and a judge wanting a quick trial. Buckle your safety belt.... You are in for a wild ride.
