For Alec Hawthorne, an internationally famous aviation lawyer, it means money - and the chance to fight once again for safety in the skies.
For Keith Tollison, a small-time lawyer, the crash has a more personal implication; Jack Donahue, the husband of the woman Keith loves, was on board the plane.
On Laura Donahue's behalf, the former friends reunite to take on the airline. But as the trial progresses Alec, Keith and Laura find themselves caught in a complex web of intrigue and deceit, and the secrets revealed threaten to destroy them all.
