A Supreme Court justice is found cut into pieces in the back of a pickup truck.
Three other judges have already gone missing.
In the eighth installment of Scott Pratt's best-selling Joe Dillard Series, Dillard is hired to represent the man driving the pickup. As Dillard delves into the case, he comes to believe his client is not guilty. But who is? Who has been kidnapping and killing judges all over the state of Tennessee?
The search for that answer leads Dillard and his friend, Sheriff Leon Bates, down a path so dark and so dangerous to a villain so evil, it will change both Joe and Leon forever - if they manage to survive.

Pratt writes better legal thrillers than Grisham
- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"
Semblance vs. Realism
Aristotle declared [Poetics] that organic or living forms was the most important feature of any composition, and that everything in art, however fantastic, must seem like life. However, he also observed that IT NEED ONLY SEEM, NOT ACTUALLY BE, LIFE LIKE. I subscribe to this explanation and feel that the "legal thriller" genre attributed to this book contains nothing of the mystery of so-called form: how a theme or content becomes, from an object of reality an object of art, which distinguishes a phenomenon from its representation, how an "event" becomes a "work", be it fiction or otherwise.
