When Detective Sergeant Bob Duncan was assigned to investigate a routine rape case, it turned out to be anything but routine. First, he ran afoul of his boss, who was wasting perfectly good air just by breathing it. Taken off the case and transferred to traffic detail, he bumped into the victim, who wasn't all that happy with him either, because she took his advice and it ruined her life. But somehow, he and the victim became friends. Good friends, in fact. And it looked like that friendship might blossom into something very special, when their lives took yet another crazy twist and Bob had to decide whether to arrest her for a crime... a crime she couldn't remember committing... a crime that might land the woman who loved him in prison for the rest of her life. Somehow one of the best cops in the city found himself withholding evidence on what looked an awful lot like murder. And when she suddenly remembered what she had done, it looked like it would all fall apart. She had a conscience, and while Bob could ignore the facts, for love ... she could not. She placed her fate - and their future - in the hands of twelve jurors, jurors who struggled to understand the true meaning of the word "justice."
