Superstar defense attorney Theodore "Teddy" Hoffman is the man everyone wants on their side. But even he's surprised to find himself defending one man for murder, then a few hours later defending a different man for the same murder. The first man arrested is Richard Cross, an entrepreneur-philanthropist who's having an affair with the murder victim's older sister. After the charges against him are dropped, Neil Avedon, a hot young Hollywood actor, is charged with the crime. Yet as Hoffman delves deeper into the case, his gut instinct tells him Cross is still secretly involved, deftly manipulating witnesses and even terrorizing Hoffman's own family.
Take a seat on the jury as "Murder One" follows a single murder case, from the point of view of the defense attorney, for an entire season. A riveting and cleverly woven plot full of subtle deceptions, outright lies and murder, this case will keep you guessing until the final gavel falls.
