Legendary defense attorney Raquel Rematti represents a presidential candidate―and former First Lady of an ISIS-assassinated President―Senator Angelina Baldesteri in the most watched and explosive trial of the 21st Century. The Senator, a Democrat, sees it as a vendetta show trial orchestrated by the current Republican US President, his Republican Attorney General, and an ambitious Republican United States Attorney in Manhattan. At the trial, a year before the election, the Senator faces charges of election fraud, tax evasion, and money laundering; each of which could deem her unfit for office and all but remove her from the Presidential race. As the epic trial unfolds, Raquel is staggered by her client’s naked ambition and the extent of the complex relationships the Senator keeps hidden in a mounting trail of lies. Every aspect of the Senator’s life is inundated with intrigue. When the swirling forces start getting lethal, Raquel needs to extricate herself from the venom of these illicit and treacherous connections. These two powerful women keep things professional in the courtroom under the eyes of a crusty old judge, but once outside, they pit themselves against each other, warrior to warrior. At the end, only one will be left standing.
