They are at the center of a multimillion-dollar legal hurricane: twelve men and women who have been investigated, watched, manipulated, and harassed by high-priced lawyers and consultants who will stop at nothing to secure a verdict.

But only a handful of people know the truth: that this jury has a leader, and the verdict belongs to him.

Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens.

For twenty-two years he languished in prison, maintaining his innocence. But no one was listening.
