Baltimore’s Judge Armando Acosti’s harsh and inflexible rulings are notorious. His unjust sentence of attorney Paul Madriani’s latest client, an abused wife charged with the murder of her husband, is proof. But Madriana soon finds himself in a curious position of power over the judge. Acosti is arrested for soliciting a prostitute—undercover vice cop, Brittany Hill, who’s called in as key witness for the prosecution. Acosti denies the charges, but when Hill is murdered—and all evidence points to the judge—Acosti finds himself in desperate need of a savvy defense.
