Verdict Denied

by Leonard Ruhl

Kansas judge Ben Joel catches a death penalty case involving a local drug dealer with ties to a Mexican cartel. When his sister is abducted three days before the trial, Judge Joel is told what he must do to save her—cut the defendant loose utilizing a seldom-used judicial tool known as a judgment of acquittal. A call to law enforcement would expose a conflict of interest that would disqualify him from the case and get his sister killed, so Ben plunges into the trial of his life by day, and the dark underworld of the drug trade by night, with the aid of only a few trusted allies.
