Reopening a cold murder case uncovers disturbing secrets ... and forces a young prosecutor to an agonizing decision.
Everyone knew Rick Harker was guilty. Twenty-six years ago he murdered Lisa Foster and set her body on fire. Lisa's three-year-old daughter Christine identified Harker as the murderer, and he's been in San Quentin ever since. But now the adult Christine Foster is recanting her testimony--handing assistant DA Matt Jamison a case that will test his character and his convictions. While Harker's idealistic attorney demands a new trial, Jamison retraces the original investigation, trying to find if there is any doubt of Harker's guilt. When Jamison finds evidence of corruption in the DA's office he is faced with a question that will shatter his lifelong relationships, endanger his career, and threaten his faith in the justice system: Is exposing the truth worth the damage?
