Poorly paid lawyer Clay Carter dreams of being involved in bigger and better cases than those he is assigned at the Office of the Public Defender.

But Clay Carter is wrong.
As he investigates, suspense builds as he comes to the realisation that Watson is involved in a devious pharmaceutical conspiracy.

But of course, everything comes at a cost.
