Baxter “Boxer” Tate is preparing to graduate with poor grades from an unaccredited law school when he first encounters Miller Johnson, a partner at Malloy, a third-rate insurance defense firm. Boxer is being sued in a personal-injury case, but after meeting with Miller, he knows he will get Miller’s firm to give him a job—his first step on the road to judicial superstardom.

After passing the bar exam, Boxer joins the Malloy law firm and finds himself entering the legal profession through a variety of judicial hellholes. There he thrives, learning to be an articulate, effective advocate—a courtroom magician of sorts. His star begins to rise, and he’s finally going in the direction he wants. But then he loses some big ones and spends time in jail. He falls in love with two women at once and is soon hated by judges and adversaries alike. As his fate becomes more uncertain, he wonders whether the judicial system actually renders justice in a world where the bench and the bar are both corrupt.

This legal thriller follows the changing fates of a talented but controversial lawyer through the ins and outs of the legal profession.
