The cops have proof that will send Tomek to prison for life. Prosecuting the case is a Viking goddess of a woman, as smart as she is stunning. Next to her, Lennox feels like a garden gnome. Everyone's hot for the prosecutor including Lennox's boss and Tomek's defense attorney who's willing to throw Tomek under the bus in a plea deal that carries a ten-year sentence.
Big as a tool shed and twice as dumb—what is it about Tomek that convinces Lennox of his innocence? As Lennox unwinds all the lies surrounding the case, she sees deeper into Tomek's humanity and into her own as well. She realizes that she's in love with the defense attorney who's in lust with the prosecutor. Lennox bets her job, her love and her own safety to find the killer. She's all in.
