There is a murder in an Amish community and an Amish boy is accused of it. Almost the entire town believes he is guilty.
In comes Jessica Langdon, a big city lawyer, who needs to save her career by taking on such a case. Only one person in the town believes he is innocent and she has hired Jessica to defend him.
The woman's grown son, Trey, thinks he is guilty but Jessica must rely on him because he has ties to the Amish and she is not at all familiar with the Amish community and their way of living.
The book keeps you guessing.
