Newly-wed and happy, criminal lawyer Robbie Munro can surely stay out of trouble. But when an old flame wants him to investigate the death of her fiancé, his problems begin. A notorious child-murderer might soon be free because prosecution evidence was fabricated – and it was Robbie’s dad who secured the conviction.

With time running out, can Robbie uncover the truth?
