Winter's Law

Criminal defense attorney Talon Winter takes on the case of her life–and her client’s.

Michael Jameson is a successful, forty-something, African American husband and father. And he’s just been charged with a 25-year-old cold case murder, a gang-related drug deal gone horribly wrong. Talon agrees to take the case, but the one question she needs answered is the one question Michael refuses to answer: Did he do it?

Michael insists it doesn’t matter. He’s not the same person he was twenty-five years ago. He’s built a new life in the intervening years, and nothing that happens now will bring the victim back. Instead, he poses a far more provocative question: Would the legal system reach back that far to take away everything built up by a successful White man?
