In the high-stakes courtroom battles of his legal career, San Antonio District Attorney Chris Sinclair has prose­cuted cases that have changed lives, bringing justice to victims and sending criminals to prison. He has prided himself on getting it right—putting the guilty in prison. And when he gets it wrong, he does what's necessary to set things right.

Steve Greerdon was not a dirty cop, but eight years ago Chris had evidence that sent him to jail for armed robbery. Recently, new DNA evidence cleared Greer­don's name and he was released. Then two police officers are murdered, and Greerdon is found at the scene of the crime with no alibi. Chris once again becomes suspicious, despite Greerdon's claims that a police conspiracy wants to send him back to jail.

Either crooked cops are trying to cover up a years-old crime—or Chris was a fool for helping to secure Greerdon's release. Suddenly wary of the system and those who serve it, Chris can't trust anyone, especially not the policemen supposed to be fellow officers of the court.

Chris's girlfriend, child psychiatrist Anne Greenwald, is drawn into the deepening mystery when one of her patients confides facts to her that could give Chris the evidence he needs to break the conspiracy. But Anne can't violate doctor-patient confidentiality. Complicating things further, Chris s teenage daughter becomes involved with Greerdon's son.

Time is running out and murders are piling up. If the killer can't be stopped, Chris or his daughter could be the next victim. As Chris and Anne struggle to balance their personal lives with their professional concerns, this intense, powerful novel weaves an ever-tightening web of suspense that will keep readers chasing the truth until the final page.
