Billionaire genius Byon Gaines is accused of murdering his wife and her lover, but he swears he didn't do it. This couldn't have come at a worse time: Byron is so close to a breakthrough in his research. He's about to invent a device that will change the world forever. The irony is, if only he had a little more time, he'd be able to make his legal problems disappear--along with himself.
Byron's defense is that he and his wife were going through a messy divorce. As per the terms of their pre-nup she knew she would get nothing, so she plotted with Byron's lead engineer to disappear. They stole Byron's research and the valuables in his safe and then framed him for their murders. But with little evidence to support his claims, the evidence against Byron is damning: a pool of blood that seeped into his bedroom floor only to be scrubbed away, and a shell casing found in a floor register matches the gun in his safe.
Byron is sentenced to 25 years to life for two counts of first-degree murder, but he insists that he's been wrongfully imprisoned. While he's in prison, Byron has plenty of time to figure out what really happened, and more importantly, how to get even.
