It’s only when attorney Frank Connor is falsely accused of murder that he realizes everything he’s believed in is a lie. Twenty years ago, as a young lawyer, Frank unsuccessfully defended Tyrell Sikes on rape and murder charges. Sikes spent nineteen years on Death Row before being freed because his DNA didn’t match the semen and tissue samples. Armed with the proceeds of a $10 million settlement for wrongful conviction, Sikes is now bent on exacting revenge against the people he holds responsible for his imprisonment, including his former lawyer. So when Sikes is found floating in Turtle Bayou with a two bullet holes in the back of his head, Frank’s the natural suspect.
