Summary, etc.:
Dale Masterson, a wealthy lawyer who has built a career representing coal and oil companies, has enemies - including his own son, Brandon, a fanatical eco-warrior who despises everything his father stands for. When Dale is found beaten to death, Brandon is spotted fleeing the scene. He confesses to the murder, proclaiming it an act of revenge against his father's controversial clients. Veteran attorney Amanda Jaffe is hired to represent him, but what seems like an open-and-shut case quickly begins to unravel. Weeks before Dale's death, a colleague at his large law firm was also the victim of a violent killing. A junior employee stands accused of Christine Larson's murder, but in the aftermath, questions emerge about the firm's business practices - as well as evidence of Dale's involvement in some troubling irregularities. Amanda suspects Brandon may not be telling the truth, but if he didn't kill his father, who did? Smart, fierce, and unafraid of confronting the truth, even if doing so puts her in danger, Amanda begins to dig deeper. What she finds will force her to make the hardest professional decision of her life.
