Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
When a young woman accuses college-football superstar Blaine Hastins of rape, the DNA evidence against him is overwhelming.  Yet the athlete swears his innocence and threatens both his lawyer and his accuser.  When a second rape occurs, the DNA evidence again points to Hastings.  The only problem?  Hastins was in prison when the crime was committed.  A a result, the convicted athlete, represented by a new lawyer, is granted a new trial and bail.  Shortly thereafter, his original lawyer disappears and his law partner is murdered.  Robin Lockwood is a young lawyer with a prestigious small law firm and a former MMA fighter who helped pay for Yale Law School with her bouts.  She is representing the victim of the first rape, who is convinced that Hastings, out on bail, is stalking her and trying to intimidate her.  At the same time, another client is up on a murder charge - one that should be dismissed as self-defence - but the D.A. trying the case is determined to bring it to trial.  Now she has to mastermind two impossible cases, trying to find the hidden truth that links them.
