Dapper and diabolical defense attorney Martin Ehrengraf never sees the inside of a courtroom, because all his clients are innocent, no matter how guilty they may seem.

Evidence turns up, incriminating someone else. More murders occur, with the same M.O. And the gate of the jail cell opens, and the accused walks free.
