Summary
Criminal defense attorney Martin Vail is brilliant and confident. He is accustomed to fabricating and selling the truth while seeking the glory in the media spotlight. When he learns of the gruesome murder of a local Catholic archbishop, he immediately decides to defend the accused penniless altar boy. But Vail soon discovers that nothing is as it seems, as he becomes tangled in a web of lies, corruption and betrayal
