When the peccadilloes of his law-firm partner sink the business, Eddie Amos returns to the Commonwealth Attorney's office as a prosecutor having as his chief goals the conviction-on the basis of suspected longstanding sexual-abuse of boys-of (1) the administrator of a tax-funded youth organization in the central-Kentucky city of Lexington, and (2) the city's drug-czar/pimp. At the same time, a young attorney instigates a heretofore-unheard-of wrongful-death lawsuit, generated by a drunk driver, against a distillery, and the two lawyers work together to achieve their goals. An assassination, two murders and a possible suicide impact or result from their efforts.

Characters ranging from the most sublime to the seamiest-an Episcopal priest (Vietnam veteran), drug pushers, dope-heads, prostitutes, embezzlers, rogue cops, troubled teenagers, a greed-driven booze-maker, corporate lawyers, sexual perverts, a hit-man, sex-abuse victims, and a devout and beautiful paralegal-are caught up in the process, during the development of which Amos, the priest, a restaurateur embittered by the drunk-driver-induced death of her husband, a corporate attorney's wife, the young lawyer and the paralegal progress through spiritual journeys and/or experience the developing of romantic attachments or profound heartbreak, but find some answers to hard questions.
