Paraplegic attorney Pen Wilkinson, fighting through horrific flashbacks from a previous case, returns to Minnesota to investigate the murder of a candidate for governor. Is the murder a crime of passion, a political assassination, or part of a larger scheme?

As tensions mount, Pen's search unearths a horrifying plot to engulf the state in racial violence for political gain.
