That’s how Jimmy Nunzio, the Philadelphia crime lord, is caught by the police. Knife in hand, soaked in blood, standing over the corpse of his daughter’s lover who also happened to be his archenemy. Is that why Nunzio killed him? Because he wanted to protect his daughter from his rival? Or did something else happen? Mick McFarland, a brilliant criminal lawyer, usually at ease in the courtroom finds the tables turned when he has to defend Nunzio. Why?
