Travis Morgan's case seems open-and-shut: a plot to kill his estranged father, fundamentalist preacher Arlie Morgan, goes awry and his bullet slays an innocent bookkeeper. Two eyewitnesses seal Travis' fate. But despite damning evidence, Travis staunchly maintains his innocence. Beseeched by his anguished mother, veteran defense attorney Barbara Holloway agrees to represent Travis. With the support of her father attorney Frank Holloway and crack private investigator Bailey, Barbara uncovers a convoluted conspiracy braiding religious fanaticism, unimaginable atrocities, and a heavily bankrolled militia. Despite accumulating evidence implicating the Reverend Arlie Morgan, the family physician, and others, Travis' case proceeds to trial. Barbara finds herself pitted against a complacent legal system and a judge eager to simply close the case and retire. Knowing she must intervene decisively to avoid a conviction, Barbara steps squarely into the path of danger. She confronts the Reverend Morgan, uncoiling his venomous wrath. Risking her own life, Barbara knows she must force his hand in order to save Travis' life.
