Synopsis: A brutal murder rocks a city.  An innocent man stands accused.  And justice is the next to die.

In a city of tolerance and hope, everything came apart.  One man died  at the hands of another.  The next victim was killed by a mob.  Now fires burn in the night, helicopters throb through the air, and politicians, lawyers and cops vie for the remnants of power...

Somewhere in the once-placid streets of San Francisco, a young man is on the run, charged by the media with a crime he didn't commit, hounded by demagogues, hunted by a desperate police department.  One cop knows that Kevin Shea is innocent of a brutal racial murder.  An ambitious politician will use Shea for her own ends.   And a down-and-out lawyer is all that stands between Kevin Shea and an even more atrocious crime.   For when there's no law left, justice is the only hope...
