When a married successful businesswoman is called upon for jury duty, she finds herself not only hearing the case of a man who killed his wife but, more importantly, the story of a family whose life is so much like her own family's life.

Melissa Wraxall has it all: a luxurious house in Bath, a successful small business, a good-looking husband, and supportive friends. She's lucky and she knows it. But then an unexpected summons to jury duty shocks Melissa out of her sweet golden existence.
In a highly publicized murder trial, the prosecution accuses Michael Bauer of brutally murdering his wife, stabbing her seven times in the chest. The defendant's lawyers claim he acted in self-defense. Initially, Melissa can weigh both sides objectively. But as the trial progresses, she begins to hear disturbing echoes of her own marriage in the tangled and tragic family life of the accused.
By the trial's end, when most of the jurors are convinced of Bauer's guilt, Melissa Wraxall is forced to judge not only the defendant but also herself - and the people she has always loved.
