The Office of the Public Defender is not known as a training ground for bright young litigators.

As he digs deeper into his client’s background, Clay stumbles upon a conspiracy too horrible to believe. He suddenly finds himself in the middle of a complex case against one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, looking at an enormous settlement that would totally change his life – a settlement that would make him, almost overnight, the legal profession’s newest king of torts…
