A parent's worst nightmare.A lawyer's biggest challenge.A young boy's life on the line.The unimaginable has happened. A thirteen-year-old boy has fired a rifle into a baseball game, killing several of the kids on the field. Parents are devastated. The townspeople are horrified. When public opinion swells to an enraged cry for justice, an ambitious deputy district attorney sees his opportunity---a sensational trial that will catapult him into the D.A.'s office in the upcoming election. There's just one obstacle: the boy's defense attorney, Lindy Field. To all appearances, the case is a slam-dunk. Convict the killer, make him pay. But it's not that simple. Lindy's young client is unwilling---or unable---to help Lindy defend him. And as the case progresses, it becomes clear that someone doesn?t want the truth revealed. As Lindy delves into the haunted world of her client's torment, she finds a spiritual darkness that dredges up her own troubled past. And when dangerous forces close in around her, Lindy must fight for answers not only in the justice system, but in the very depths of her soul.
