That was minutes before a blast made everything go black for Vince--forever. Now: Miami criminal defense lawyer Jack Swyteck has been called in to save Jamal from the death penalty for terrorist activity. Despite urgent warnings from his fiance, undercover FBI agent Andie Henning, to stay away from the case, Jack finds himself inextricably drawn to Jamal's past, even believing his alibi that he was abducted and held in a black site in Prague at the time of McKenna's death.
