But the professional spotlight turns Josie's way again when she is tagged to defend a troubled teen accused of murdering a prominent judge. When the girl faces the death penalty, Josie cannot turn her back. To save her, Josie uncovers a shocking truth: politics, privilege, and personal ties are a combustible and deadly combination that she and her client might not survive.  

And that's just the beginning...
