Criminal defense attorney Alex Miller has the life he’s always dreamed of: a loving and patient wife, a beautiful daughter, and a career as the youngest partner in one of the most powerful law firms in New York City. At his father’s funeral, Alex meets a wealthy and mysterious family friend who requests his representation in a high-profile criminal investigation of an alleged brokerage scam that has cost investors hundreds of millions of dollars. The shocking facts of the case propel Alex to unscrupulous depths in a desperate search for the truth, forcing him to confront a past defined by deception and a future in jeopardy. One false step will close the case on Alex and everything he holds dear forever.
