Juror #7 Joe McKusick, who runs a halfway house, drops dead cyanide-poisoned during Otis Williams's high-profile trial for the murder of heiress Lyla Addison, which is thus declared a mistrial. Juror #4 Tony Mueller runs, possibly bribed, but claims he believed Otis's cousin Wardell, who approached him implying a set-up, poisoned Joe, which fits security footage, and he'd be next. Wardell claims to be framed too. The cyanide came not from the court house vending machine coffee but was released from a capsule. The plot thickens further, especially with two malversations within Justice. Written by
