John Lundgren loves the challenge of defending his clients. As a public defender in the great city of Chicago, he defends them all: the guilty, the not-so-guilty, and the bug-eyed crazy.

But when he gets assigned Richard Palmer, a highly intelligent man accused of an impossible arson and horrific mass murder, he soon discovers this case will challenge him like no other—just not in any way he ever expected.
