When mobster Al Moroconi is charged with orchestrating a heinous crime against a young woman, the first defense attorney on the case mysteriously disappears. Now, Travis Byrne, a smart Dallas cop who recently traded his badge for a law degree, is appointed by a federal judge to speak for the defense.
But just as the trial is getting under way Moroconi shoots his way out of court custody, steals a car, and vanishes into the Dallas underworld, taking Travis's reputation with him. Suddenly the FBI is after Travis for a murder he didn't commit. The mob wants to kill him for a secret hit list he doesn't have. Running for his life, Travis comes to a horrifying realization: the charge against Moroconi is just a cover for something much bigger and more foul...
