Summary: Dan Becket is a brilliant barrister haunted by the shadows of the past. Simon Montford is the darling of the establishment, a millionaire industrialist and former cabinet minister. Their fates are joined in the most sensational trial in fifty years -- the first war crimes prosecution since Nuremberg.
When the Allies liberated the Nazi concentration camps in 1945, the world believed the horrors of the camps were at an end. But in the experimental sub-camp of Neuwelt, one final atrocity was yet to be committed, and the repercussions are surfacing only now with Major Simon Montford of the British Army on trial for murder.
Becket does everything he can to avoid prosecuting the case. Accepting the brief could ruin his career; refusing it could endanger his life and that of his daughter.
