When Mason discovers that Sullivan's moral compass is a little off, he begins to re-think working for the firm. He tells himself he'll think it over at the upcoming firm retreat. While at the retreat, Sheriff Kelly Holt interrupts his poolside siesta to tell him his partner is dead.
The death of his partner sets off an avalanche of events that culminate in Mason being framed for a series of crimes he didn't commit. To save himself, Mason uncovers high-level corruption, takes on organized crime, and is targeted for murder. Follow Mason as he fights to stay alive.
