Winston Patrick, a successful but dissatisfied criminal defence lawyer, thought he had left the law behind him, trading in the courtroom for the classroom at a rough East Vancouver high school. But soon a fellow teacher seeks his legal help after a student threatens to expose a lurid teacher-student love affair. Reluctantly, Winston has agreed to provide legal defense when the case takes an uglier turn: the student is murdered. Winston and his best friend, Detective Andrea Pearson, find themselves immersed in a murder investigation that could cause an international incident...if it doesn't cost Winston his own life first.
