A rich ad exec comes home late from Manhattan one night to his house in eastern Long Island and discovers his wife’s lifeless body on the rocks below the bluff and decides to lie to the police about the situation because he’s wealthy and having an affair, figuring they won’t believe what happened was an accident or he wasn’t somehow directly involved. Days later, his story is shredded to pieces by two witnesses, and he’s now being charged with murder. He hires two prominent lawyers to defend him and find out what really happened. But with the media coverage completely biased, and the DA thinking about running for office down the road, the cards are stacked against them. To keep him out of prison for life, they have to discover what really happened that night (find out whether it was an accident or a murder), and if the latter, find out who did it, but considering not one iota of evidence pointed to anybody being at the crime scene except for him, and the DA refuses to believe it was an accident, considering he initially lied when he discovered his wife’s lifeless body, life in prison seems the only option. Mystery & Suspense.
