Eddie Brannigan idolises his father Ed Senior, a rich and powerful lawyer. And, after years of separation, Ed Senior is delighted to have his talented son back in his life. But that closeness is about to be tested...to the limit. Rebecca, an attractive friend of Eddie's, accuses Ed Senior of date-rape. Eddie cannot believe his father is capable of such a crime - until he learns about some very disturbing aspects of his father's past. But when a man as powerful and well-connected as Ed Senior claims that no crime has been committed, who would dare to disbelieve him? And what matters more to Eddie: his precious new relationship with his father - or justice for Rebecca?
