The defendent is "Lucky Sam" Luckey, on trial for the fatal shooting of Marvin Stump. Thomas Nash, the prosecutor, is confident of obtaining a conviction. Not because of the preponderance of evidence, but because of the defendant's reputation as a criminal and a racketeer. On the other side, the defense attorney, the dynamic and flamboyant Russell Holloway, faces the outcome glumly, knowing that Sam is in effect being tried not for what he did, but for what he is. So the trial runs its course, replete with surprises, vivid character flashes and tense crises, until the final witness turns the whole case topsy-turvy, and the audience-jury is ready to bring in its verdict.
