In this murder mystery, Philadelphia police discover the body of Sean Murphy, a lawyer equally famous for defending guilty criminals and seducing defenseless clients. His young associate, Drew Sullivan could really use an alibi (which he doesn’t have), a defense against allegations of raping Sean’s daughter (which he didn’t do) and an explanation for why he was kissing Sean’s girlfriend Darcy Flannigan (which he did do and thoroughly enjoyed) shortly before Sean’s murder. The police, who struggle to remain motivated to find a killer they believe performed a civic duty, focus upon Drew, joyously exacting revenge for his ‘not guilty’ verdicts. The detectives sift through the lawyers’ intrigue and deception to solve the case before the killer strikes again. But preventing someone from killing successful criminal defense attorneys isn’t really high on their list of things to do today.
