An American Lawyer in Paris Jail . . .
A bright young Texas lawyer determined to make it on his own leaves the DA's Office to pursue a career as a criminal defense attorney.

Caught red-handed in Paris, France, he lands in prison indefinitely.
Isolated from his culture and marked as l'Americain, he is focused on staying alive at a time when Anglo-Franco relations are at an all-time low. Facing years in French prison and multiple life terms in the United States, Lawyer X must protect his best friend's innocence and salvage his own dignity. His mentor, a legendary Dallas attorney, fights to keep him from becoming a casualty in the War on Drugs.
