The investigation into the death of Prosecuting Attorney Alex Burnett leads to the discovery of other crimes which garners huge headlines for the Richmond Police Department. For the brass, the number of closed cases is a triumph; however, it does not solve the murder of the friend and mentor of Nathan “Nate” Reigns, a detective in the Major Crimes Division.
As a one-time top criminal defense attorney, Nate uses his insight from his previous occupation to close his cases. No case leaves his desk marked closed until he has filled every hole a defense attorney will use to free their client. Nate vows justice for his friend. That path leads to an organization with plans that will have far-reaching impacts on the justice departments across the country.
