The affluent bedroom community of Chestnut Hills, Michigan, is rocked when two of its residents are savagely beaten and raped, stirring horrid memories of a similar, unsolved attack that lead to the victim’s suicide years earlier.
When a routine traffic stop leads to the arrest of Sonny Marx, a wily conman with a lurid past, and a trunk full of incriminating evidence, contentious brothers, Andrew and Ethan Rivers, square off in court. Andrew, the dogmatic prosecutor who will stop at nothing, absolutely nothing, to get a conviction – Ethan, the unscrupulous criminal defense attorney who will use every trick in the book to earn an acquittal… any acquittal.
But the real threat lurks outside the courtroom and before the trial grinds to a close, a devastating secret is unlocked – a secret one brother will endure, and one will not.
A secret, in fact, that will prey upon an entire community.
