The prosecutor- Julia Valenciano. Young, ambitious and facing a case that could launch her career.
The defendant – David Marquette. A successful Miami surgeon and devoted family man.
The victims – Marquette's own wife and three small children.
The plea- Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity.
But the state suspects Marquette's insanity defence is being fabricated to disguise murders that were cold-blooded and calculated. Worse, Julia believes Marquette could be responsible for a string of unsolved, brutal homicides. The distraught survivor could just be one of the most prolific and elusive serial killers in Florida's history.
The trial will take Julia on a painful personal journey back to a past she has struggled for fifteen years to forget. And it will bring her face to face with a future that is so frightening, she's not sure if she even wants to see it.
