Thomas Dennehy, senior prosecutor in Davidson County, Tennessee, doesn't recognize Nashville anymore: a decade of relentless immigration means cops are learning Spanish, and the DA's office is looking for Vietnamese translators. Thomas's latest case is prosecuting Moses Bol, a Sudanese refugee who faces the death penalty for killing a white woman in the Nations, a notorious, racially charged part of town. Bol's conviction seems certain, until a university professor claims Thomas sent the wrong man to the death chamber in a previous case. The DA's office is rocked to its core, but within days another blow falls: a beautiful and brilliant anti-death penalty activist mysteriously surfaces as Bol's alibi, claiming she was with him at the time of the crime. Bol's case becomes a lightning rod as protesters on all sides converge on Nashville and tensions threaten to explode.
Will Dennehy be able to piece things together before everything he believes about the law, and about justice, are torn apart?
Performed by Michael Tucker

Fiona Towns, an anti-death penalty activist, comes forth as an alibi for Moses Bol, a Sudanese refugee accused of murdering a white woman. Nonetheless, Thomas Dennehy, the county prosecutor, gets Bol convicted of the crime. Simultaneously, Dennehy's earlier conviction of David Bridges for murder is resurrected as Bridges is released and involves himself in Towns's church and in harassing Dennehy. Michael Tucker narrates flawlessly as he follows a plot that twists and turns as Arvin tangles the truth into a knot. Tucker's steady cadence keeps Dennehy on a level emotional keel while he flirts with Towns and fights for his career in the courtroom and the streets.
