An ill prison inmate is killed in the morgue so that a guilty murder on death row can walk to freedom, and execute his threats to murder Judge Knoche and Prosecuting Attorney Tabbelle.
A mystery killer's computerized matrix of information provides data from which confessions are extracted from dying inmates.
LaRoach, the cruel prison warden, maneuvers Judge Knoche into personal involvement to catch the killer. The local priest, Father Jonathan and Sister Bakke are manipulated as pawns in a chess game of life and death.
Power broker posturing in the prison increases the dead body count. Within two weeks a total of four prisoners are murdered and three death bed confessions are discovered.
Judge Knodhe devises an entrapment plan in which FBI agents are hidden within the prison to observe an attempted murder of the ill prisoner, but the local newspaper undermines the plan.
Prisoner death bed confessions are declared valid by qualified experts, and a Bar Association Ethics Commission investigates the Judge's management of a prisoner's appeal for a retrial.
Judge Knoche discovers the killer's identity, but not before one guilty prisoner beats the legal system and is released.
