When devoted father Buck Hammond's seven-year-old son is abducted and murdered by Hector Monteros, Buck takes justice into his own hands. Unfortunately, the TV cameras were rolling as Buck aimed his hunting rifle at Monteros's head. The only viable defense is insanity, but the grieving father refuses to say he was crazy when he pulled the trigger. Attorney Marty Nickerson, until recently a Massachusetts prosecutor, has a tough role acting as his defence attorney. How can the jury acquit Buck when the shooting is right there on the screen for all to see? Marty and her partner, Harry Madigan are already stretched thin when, on the very eve of the trial, a battered and bleeding woman staggers into their office. She's in deep trouble - her attacker's body has just been found, viciously stabbed, and he's an officer of the court. But losing a verdict may be the least of Marty's worries, as her efforts soon lead to shocking revelations that bring fear to the Cape and devastating changes to Buck's trial.
