Carlos has a sick daughter and needs money. He’s also an upstanding citizen who pays his taxes, puts in his forty hours, doesn’t drink and carouse, and loves his wife. Still . . . he has nowhere else to turn. So Carlos gets money the old-fashioned way—he robs banks. The money comes pouring in, but then a new man joins the crew and everything tumbles downhill. Criminal charges for armed robbery are brought against Carlos in several states and he needs a heavy hitter to defend him.
Carlos calls Michael Gresham for help and the lawyer comes to his aid. But it is going to be the meanest case of Michael’s career, as the prosecutor is a woman who means to jab the death needle in Carlos’ arm and watch him die. And she has the legal chops to do just that. But she has problems of her own—legal problems, big ones.
