Frank McGarrity, a young lawyer in Princeton, takes the case of William, who won't give his last name but carries plenty of cash. William confides he murdered a man but assures him he won't kill again. He doesn't admit that he longs to be the most famous serial killer ever and plans to execute thirteen privileged people who took advantage of his indigent mother or him. McGarrity is torn between legal ethics and moral right. As a lawyer, he must keep any secrets as long as a client doesn't reveal an intent to commit a future crime.
