When Robert Fielding, a young African American man with a criminal past, is accused of killing a prominent white judge in the willowy bayous of Louisiana, a death sentence is all but certain. But as Private Investigator, Will Hogarth, dives into the seedy underbelly of Post-Katrina New Orleans, he's quick to find that blackmail and murder are a matter of routine.
