Description

It is the most sensational murder trial since O. J. Simpson. The nation is obsessed with Sydney Bennett, a sexy nightclub waitress and good-time girl accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter for cramping her party life. Agreeing to defend Sydney, Jack Swyteck knew he was taking on the toughest and most controversial case of his career. Millions of TV Jurors have convicted Sydney in the courtroom of public opinion. When the shocking verdict - not guilty - is announced, citizens across the country are outraged and Jack is bombarded by the fallout: angry, profanity-laced phone calls and even outright threats. Media-fed rumors of blood money -purported seven-figure book and movie deals-ratchet up the hysteria, putting put his client and everyone around her at risk. On the night of Sydney's release, an angry mob outside the jail has gathered to serve its own justice. In the frenzy, an innocent young woman bearing a striking resemblance to the reviled Sydney Bennett ends up in a coma. While the media blame Jack and his defense team, the victim's parents reach out to him, requesting his help. They don't believe the attack was the tragic result of random mob violence.
Searching for the truth about what happened that night, Jack makes a frightening discovery. Larger and much more powerful forces are working in the shadows ...and what happened outside the jail is a symptom of an evil that infected the show-stopping trial and media-spun phenomenon of Sydney Bennett.
