Summary
We expect our judges to be honest and wise. We trust them to ensure fair trials, to protect the rights of all litigants, to punish those who do wrong, and to oversee the orderly and efficient flow of justice. But what happens when a judge bends the law or takes a bribe? Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for The Florida Board On Judicial Conduct. She is a lawyer, not a cop, and it is her job to respond to complaints dealing with judicial misconduct. After ninety years with the Board, she knows that most problems are caused by incompetence, not corruption. But a corruption case crosses her desk eventually. A lawyer disbarred previously is back in business with a new identity. He now goes by the name Greg Myers, and he claims to know of a Florida judge who has stolen more money than all other crooked judges combined. And not just crooked judges in Florida. All judges, from all states, and throughout United States history. What is the source of the gains ill-gotten? It seems the judge was secretly involved with the construction of a large casino on Native American land. The Coast Mafia financed the casino and is now helping itself to a sizable skim of each month's cash. The judge is getting a cut and looking the other way. It is a sweet deal: Everyone is making money. But now, Greg wants to put a stop to it. His only client is a person who knows the truth and wants to blow the whistle and collect millions under Florida law. Greg files a complaint with The Board On Judicial Conduct, and the case is assigned to Lacy Stoltz, who suspects immediately that this one could be dangerous. Dangerous is one thing. Deadly is something else
