When Kansas City jury consultant Kate Summerlin wakes up on Monday, she thinks the hardest part of her week will be picking a jury who will not give her client a death sentence. A little, Santa Clausy man named Boris changes all that when he kidnaps Kate's boss in a misguided attempt to blackmail her into rigging the jury selection in a multimillion-dollar trial.
When Kate wakes up on Tuesday, she thinks the hardest part of her week will be convincing an attorney to pick jurors so bad he cannot possibly win the case. A large Hawaiian named Duke changes all that when he slams Kate's father into a mailbox and drives off without a word.
When Kate wakes up on Wednesday, she hugs her cat and does not think about what the hardest part of her week will be.
If Kate can figure out how to fix a jury trial, she might be able to save her boss. If she can figure out what the Hawaiian wants, she might be able to save her father. If she can figure out how to squeeze in a pedicure, well, that might not save anybody, but it sure couldn't hurt.
