It's a dark day for Scottish barrister Rex Graves when he learns that Lord Gordon Murgatroyd has passed away. Referred to as "Judge Murder" by Rex's colleagues, the famously severe judge supposedly died of natural causesbut his daughter Phoebe thinks otherwise. Wanting to honor the man who'd always been uncharacteristically kind to him, Rex thinks it would be a good idea to follow up on Phoebe's suspicions...until a meeting with his first suspect. With a target on his back and a child abduction case gripping the region, Rex fears that the judge's death won't be an isolated incident.
