Winston Patrick thought he had left the law behind him. Successful - but dissatisfied - with his career defending the downtrodden of Vancouver's criminal world, Winston trades in the courtroom for the classroom at a rough East Vancouver high school. Soon his past life meets his present, when Carl, a fellow teacher, seeks his legal help after a student threatens to expose a lurid teacher-student love affair. Reluctantly, Winston has agreed to provide legal defense of Carl's alleged sexual impropriety when the case takes an even uglier turn: the student is murdered, making her alleged lover the prime suspect. Winston and his best friend, Detective Andrea Pearson, find themselves immersed in a murder investigation that could cause an international incident, if it doesn't cost Winston his own life first.
