Members of his family have been brutally murdered, and Tommy Melancon, a 13 year old, stands accused of the heinous crime. His mother is the sole survivor and is adamant that he wielded the weapon that committed the atrocity. His only advocate is his grandmother, who's hired a law firm to represent her grandson on the charges.
Emili Jones is a new paralegal, who'll have to hit the ground running. The thought of a child facing prosecution and potentially even the death penalty for a crime he didn't commit spurs Emili on to look under every rock to find the truth. Even if it means stumbling upon imminent danger. Emili will need to solve the crime to help Tommy find redemption, or die trying.
