Summary: Sean Casey (Garcia) is just another idealistic assistant D.A. - until his prosecution of a cop-killing drug lord catapults him into the center of New York's tempestuous political arena. Vowing to follow the clues wherever they lead, the young D.A. embarks on a search for the truth that will force him to question his faith in the law, his loyalty to loved ones and his place in a system where justice is the ultimate con.
