Joshua Mortin, who years ago was convicted by then (still inexperienced) prosecutor Luther Graves, still claims innocence and has threatened Graves, whose restraining order against him ran out years ago as outdated, walks in at the firm, demanding Luther sees and defends him now Mortin, the only ex-con in his building, is accused of the murder on the landlord.

The case seems to depend on the testimony of one witness, Alan Beck, and Luther's belief and strategy is that the police manipulated him, albeit legally. ADA Keller goes for the death penalty, and Mortin's first conviction was based on lousy crime scene investigation, as Tom and Alden find, but in this case proof or an alternative killer are hard to find...
