This is another paragraph Synopsis: Frank Corso, the only writer allowed to observe the proceedings of the high-profile, tight-security trial of a thug charged with sixty-three counts of murder, is in the middle of a media-circus - a real nightmare for a loner type like himself. And that's before he finds out that his close friend, photojurnalist Meg Dougherty, is in Intensive Care after a run-in with a couple of hoods. It doesn't take long for the smart, hardened reporter to realize there's a mysterious connection between the story Meg was chasing and the courtroom spectacle he's witnessing. Never a man to play it safe, Frank will follow a twisted trail of lies, brutality and rage to avenge his friend and mete out his own style of justice.
