No Way Out : When TV talkshow host Elias Claymore is accused of raping a 19-year-old girl he turns to his friend Alex Sedaka to defend him. But Alex has a fight on his hands, for Claymore - a former Black Power activist - is anything but squeaky clean and this time even the DNA evidence is stacked against him. Forced to share the defence with a tenacious lawyer from Claymore's insurance firm - Andi Phoenix - Alex must battle his way through jury tampering, conflicts of interest, and vicious hate mail to uncover the truth. With Claymore a vulnerable target in prison and the prosecution scenting blood, Alex knows that time is running out. Could it be that this time there is no way out?
