Radityo, wartawan tercepat dalam melaporkan kasus pembunuhan. Rekor tercepatnya adalah sepuluh detik. Tepat setelah sang pembunuh melibas leher korban, ia berada di sana. Saat itu, ia melihat pembunuhnya lari sambil membawa harta benda korban.
Motif standar pembunuhan adalan masalah ekonomi. Tugasnya sebagai wartawan adalah meliput kasus pembunuhan. Ia justru berharap korban segera mati meskipun meronta-ronta meminta diselamatkan olehnya.
"Oh tidak, tidak. Manda, kayaknya kita mulai garing deh pake bahasa kayak gini, hahaha. Ehem, oke.
Keinginan saya adalah sekiranya Anda tidak keberatan, apakah Anda bersedia bangun pagi melihat saya lagi? Makan pagi bersama saya lagi. Pulang kantor yang nongol muka saya lagi. Shalat berjamaah imamnya saya lagi. Menerima kado ulang tahun dari saya lagi. Mengurus anak bersama saya lagi. Memasak bersama chef andal, yaitu saya lagi. Sampai tua, duduk di kursi goyang, ditemani saya lagi. Saya lagi dan saya lagi.

While Rudy is at first skeptical, he soon realizes that the Blacks really have been shockingly mistreated by the huge company, and that he just may have stumbled upon one of the largest insurance frauds anyone's ever seen -- and one of the most lucrative and important cases in the history of civil litigation.

Mitchell McDeere, raised in the coal-mining region of rural Kentucky, has worked hard to get where he is: third in his class at Harvard Law. He's young. He's bright. He's ambitious. Mitch could have the pick of the big firms in New York and Chicago, but he's chosen the Memphis tax firm of Bendini, Lambert & Locke. They're selective. They pay outrageous salaries. They have a turnover rate of zero. And Mitch is about to find out why.Several events fuel Mitch's growing suspicions: two of the partners die in a suspicious diving accident off Grand Cayman; the senior partners seem unduly proud of the fact that no one has ever resigned; and security measures at the office are, even for a company with billionaire clients, more than a little extreme. Then Mitch makes an explosive discovery: The firm is owned and operated by the most powerful organized crime family in Chicago. Even as Mitch discovers the truth, he finds himself caught between the FBI, who wants an informant inside the firm, and the firm itself, which will make him a very rich man—or a very dead one.
