In Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, two American missionaries are targeted by the infamous religious police-the Muttawa. The man is tortured and killed; his wife arrested on trumped-up charges before being deported to the U.S.
Compelled by the injustice of her plight, young attorney Brad Carson files an unprecedented civil rights suit against Saudi Arabia and the ruthless head of the Muttawa. But the suit unleashes powerful forces that will stop at nothing to vindicate the Arabian kingdom. Witnesses are intimidated and some disappear, jurors are bribed, and a member of Brad's own team may be attempting to sabotage the case.
