When prosecutor Annette Rayburn, a real bulldog, takes on Logan Investment, the board members who face serious litigation have reason to panic, one even disappears. Among the many worried clients is Jessica, who bought a few shares in a mutual fund for a 10-year-old relative. To her utter surprise she finds herself subpoenaed and threatened with contempt of court charges unless she confesses to a conversation she never had, or rather only held the horn 8 silent seconds.
