Nicholas Gallery, a young lawyer in the nation’s capital, sees his life destroyed when a drunk driver kills his wife and cripples his daughter. Nick is racked with grief, a sorrow which turns to rage when he learns that the driver is a corrupt diplomat, who plans to escape under the shield of “diplomatic immunity.” And so what begins as quiet grief, erupts into a maze of devastating events, thrusting Nick from the corridors of official Washington to a harrowing finale in the Swiss Alps.
