Approaching his office one Sunday morning, environmental lawyer and investigator Rick Ryder is greeted by the strobing lights of emergency and police vehicles - and the body of a naked stripper. The police quickly tag him for the young woman's murder. Ryder, trying to find out for himself what's happening to his life, soon discovers suspicious links between illegal tree-cutting on National Forest land and a tawdry nightclub. Battling his own alcoholism and powerful political forces, his investigations have to go into overtime, both to root out the true source of corruption ... and clear his own name.
