Losing the most high-profile case of her career ironically made Casey Cort a winner. Well-heeled clients now knock on her door, and Tom Brody, her rich ex-boyfriend, wants her back. But entry into the upper echelon comes at a price. The newest assistant United States attorney, Miles Siegel, has set his sights on nailing a public figure he believes to be corrupt: Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court judge Eamon Brody.
Ready to move on from her broken engagement, Casey Cort is excited for her first real date with Miles Siegel. Their dinner is interrupted by a call from the FBI. The two rush to the scene of a crime the magnitude of which neither can fathom: someone is keeping women and children in a storage container. Miles Siegel hopes solving and prosecuting the case of the 'women in the container' will redeem him in the eyes of his colleagues. But Sledge Hammer, the mastermind behind the trafficking, remains elusive.
