Maybe you can't make a killing in Zurich anymore, but it's still possible to kill and get killed - Attorney Thomas Borchert is back in his native Zurich. And if you need an ace lawyer specialized in financial manipulation, embezzlement, money laundering and the latest offshore scheme, he's your man. In fact, he knows both sides of the law pretty well, since he was fired without notice by his employer and charged with accepting astronomical bribes in a scandal in South America. Back in Zurich, Borchert wants to clear his name and find out who put the blame on him. Fleeing from the jurisdiction of the German authorities, he sets up his legal practice in a rickety trailer on his family's property in Zurich. The Zurich legal and financial world had better get used to his hulking figure appearing at the most inconvenient times and places. Assisting him, reluctantly at first, is the daughter of an old friend, an idealist who's wary of associating with the disgraced lawyer.
