Washington D.C., the most powerful city in the world. A schizophrenic city with two distinct faces; the official city, a tourist's paradise with uveau riche neighborhoods steeped in culture, diversity, and cosmopolitan socialites. A historic city where the Nation's laws are defined, its governments is housed, and the epicenter of its political base is located. Societal powers emanate from this city but they are ethereal intangible powers. And then there is Dodge City, a city under siege, the murder capital of America, where street syndicates dictate policy through violence, crime and intimidation. Laws don't apply here. A different type of power governs-real power-street power... Witness as the two cities of Washington D.C., cultures clash when the Latham Brothers are brought to trial for murder. They face off against an all-star prosecutorial tearm lead by James Moreland, who is poised to be the next District Attorney of Washington, D.C. With him is Daniel Abrams, the scrappy young underdog and newcomer to the legal scene whose passion for the laws and doing what is right will put him at odds with his colleagues, but will also fuel his desire to uncover the truth a truth he may be unwilling to accept.
