The nation is obsessed with Sydney Bennett, a sexy nightclub waitress and good-time girl accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter. It is the most sensational murder trial since O. J. Simpson, and the shocking "not guilty" verdict creates an immediate uproar.

On the night of Sydney's release, an angry mob gathers outside the jail and in the frenzy, an innocent young woman bearing a striking resemblance to the reviled Sydney Bennett ends up in a coma. While the media blame her lawyer Jack Swyteck and his defense team, the victim's parents reach out requesting his help. They don't believe the attack was a tragic accident.

Searching for the truth, Jack makes a frightening discovery. Larger and much more powerful forces are at work, and what happened outside the jail is a symptom of an evil that infected the show-stopping trial and media-spun phenomenon of Sydney Bennett.
