Wayne Lott, the young Mississippi attorney from Rick Ward's breakout novel The Lawmaker, is back to fight political corruption and bring down those who think that their power puts them above the law. In his quest to further fight crooked politicians, Wayne decides to pursue a career as a prosecutor and ends up in Stonewall County, Mississippi, where he finds a mentor in John Chastain, a charismatic DA with Senate aspirations. He also joins up with his old friend Wallace Tischner, who's getting ready to wage his own war against corrupt local officials-and no one is safe from the dragnet. While following leads involving a missing businessman, a suspicious airplane and a drug-running ring out of Colombia, Wayne and Tischner uncover a deadly web of bribery and conspiracy implicating a cadre of bankers, lawyers and newspaper editors. But when Wayne's life and family are threatened, how far will he go to expose the truth?
