Oklahoma attorney Ben put his reputation on the line when he represented Ray Goldman, a industrial chemist who was charged with a brutal crime - the torture and massacre of an family. But in spite of the tabloid-ready details of the sensational case, Benís deft defense against a lack of hard evidence and improper police procedure made an acquittal all but certain. Until the prosecutionís star witness - the lone survivor took the stand and sealed Ray Goldmanís fate. Seven years later, seconds before the lethal injection, an eleventh-hour reprieve halts the execution and launches Ben on a race against time to overturn Ray Goldmanís conviction. Erin Faulkner, the young woman who narrowly escaped the carnage that claimed her family, has abruptly recanted her testimony, after years of silence desperate to keep an innocent man from dying. Just as suddenly, this near-miraculous turn of events turns tragic; Erin is discovered dead, an apparent suicide. And Ben Kincaid is the only witness to her stunning confession.
