Did career criminal Alonzo Barnett, in and out of prison since age fifteen, commit the latest drug deal he's accused of? Yup, he's guilty as charged. But is he guilty as sin? That‘s the question criminal defense attorney Harrison J. Walker, the maverick known as Jaywalker, has to answer as he takes the court-appointed case. As Jaywalker is well aware, one wrong move, even for the right reason, can derail your life and land an otherwise redeemed ex-con back in the slammer for years.

Up against a team of prosecutorsone a talented, ethical newcomer, the other a sleazy, tightfisted veteranJaywalker has almost nothing on his side. Except his unshakable belief in his clientand the very real possibility of redemption for them both.
