Abstract:

A nation is obsessed with Sydney Bennett, a hot nightclub waitress accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter for cramping her party life. It's the most watched trial since O.J. Simpson, and millions of "TV Jurors" have convicted Jack's client in the arena of public opinion. The shocking verdict--not guilty--creates an immediate uproar, from angry phone calls to outright threats. Media-fed rumors of "blood money" in the form of seven-figure book and movie deals put Sydney and everyone around her at risk. On the night of Sydney's release, the angry mob outside the jail demands its own justice. A young woman ends up dead in the frenzy, her only crime being that she bears a striking resemblance to Sydney Bennett. The media blame Jack and his defense team, but to Jack's surprise, the victim's parents reach out to him. With Jack's help, they believe they can prove that their daughter's death wasn't just a random mob tragedy. Something bigger and more organized is at work, and what happened outside the jail that night is a symptom of the evil that infected the show-stopping trial and media-spun phenomenon of Sydney Bennett.
