No favorite child is one who lives life with passion and often goes astray. Matt Morgan, a successful but hardened medical malpractice defense trial attorney, is such a man--and he's ready to quit. He stays in practice to take a case against his longtime plaintiff's counsel nemesis. Lisa Sommer has died from eclampsia, severe high blood pressure caused by pregnancy. In defending the doctors and hospital in the case, Matt comes to believe that Lisa's husband may have had something to do with her death. Matt needs an expert for trial to overcome a weakness in the defense. He turns to his best friend, an obstetrician whose wife Matt has been obsessed with since they were all in high school together. Along the way, Matt is introduced to a woman with whom he might have a real chance at a meaningful relationship. But she may also hold the key to Matt's goal of obtaining ultimate justice. Can Matt win the case without losing everything?
