A stained legal career spent defending mob enforcers, two-bit hoods, and other dregs of humanity has left Philadelphia lawyer Victor Carl jaded and resentful -- until a new client appears to offer him an escape and a big payday.

The facts are clear, the truth less so. What happened to Remus' $80 million fortune, which disappeared while he was imprisoned on a minor charge? Why did George Remus murder his wife, the blue-blooded beauty once known as the Jazz Bird, who had struggled to free him from prison? And what of Charles Dodge, the federal agent who pursued Remus with such zeal, only to become desperately entangled with his wife? Was the Jazz Bird at the centre of this complicated love triangle or an innocent victim of circumstances beyond her control?
