Summary
"Fifteen years after the events in Black Water Rising, Jay Porter is struggling to cope with catastrophic changes in his personal life and the disintegration for his environmental law practice. His victory against Cole Oil is still the crown jewel of his career, even if he hasnt yet seen a dime, thanks to appeals. But time has taken its toll. Tired and restless, hes ready to quit. When a girl goes missing on election night, 1996, in the neighborhood of Pleasantville a hamlet for upwardly mobile blacks on the north side of Houston single father Jay is deeply disturbed. Hes been representing Pleasantville in the wake of a chemical fire, and the case is dragging on, raising doubts about his ability. The missing girl was a volunteer for one of the local mayoral candidates, and her disappearance complicates an already heated campaign. When the nephew of a candidate, a Pleasantville local, is arrested, Jay reluctantly finds himself serving as a defense attorney. With a mans life and his own reputation on the line, Jay is about to try his first murder in a case that will also put the electoral process on trial, exposing the dark side of power and those determined to keep it"--Atticalocke.com
