This is a legal mystery of murder and vengeance. A retired judge, Robert Tilson, has been murdered in his office at night. At first, the police look for a prior client or someone who had appeared before the judge, who is now a private mediator and arbitrator. They interview some suspects, but the police are stumped and they have no real clues. The judge's daughter, Kathy Lamb, refuses to accept this state of affairs and begins to search for the killer on her own. She meets with several possible suspects. Meanwhile, Judge Robert Hansen has been shunned by the other judges after he was tried for murder and the jury was unable to reach a verdict. The case involved the murder of a woman who had been blackmailing Judge Hansen over an incident that occurred thirty years ago. The police turn their attention to the woman's husband. Mike Zorich is on the job to find who killed Judge Tilson and who killed the woman that Judge Hansen was charged with killing. Mike is at the center of some sensational trials. Along with Kathy Lamb's help, Mike finally gets tot he bottom of things but not before a killer strikes again.
