Successful lawyer, Gwen Parrish is driven by her overwhelming ambition to be a judge. Of her two best friends, C.C. is already on the bench, and Willette is the daughter of one of the city's most powerful politicians, a man with the power to make her a judge with ease. But in Houston, Texas, the back room politics go beyond Byzantine and learning the rules of the game takes skill and cunning. Gwen's romantic life also poses a problem: she's having an affair she wants to end but can't; her ex-husband is never quite out of the picture; and marriage to her white paramour ignites more fireworks than she bargained for. But nothing will deter Gwen from the pursuit of her ambitions even though the ride is rough, taking her into the darkest corners of Houston's social, racial and legal orders. It is a journey that will test her to the limits of endurance and challenge everything that has sustained her for so long until she is stretched to the breaking point.
