When Jack Newlin comes home to find his wife dead on the floor of their elegant dining room, he's convinced he knows who killed her - and determined that the murderer should escape detection. Making a split-second decision, he sets about doctoring the evidence in order to frame himself for the crime. And to hammer the final nail in his coffin, he hires the most inexperienced lawyer he can find: Mary DiNunzio of Philadelphia law firm Rosato and Associates.
Unfortunately for Jack, hiring Mary could turn out to be a big mistake.
