Beth Lindell is a public defender for the county court system in Gamote Point. Overloaded with clients, most of whom are guilty as sin, Beth has developed a thick skin and a jaded demeanor, slogging her way through the bureaucracy of the courts day after day. She is assigned to a case that seems fairly open and shut. At first, Beth’s only interest in the case is wrapping it up quickly with a plea agreement. But as new evidence comes to light, Beth finds herself becoming drawn into a case for the first time in years. She just might have to fight for that rarest of rarities — an innocent client.
