'To your knowledge, is there anything that would preclude you from serving on this jury?'

Murder wasn't the hard part. It was just the start of the game.

Joshua Kane has been preparing for this moment his whole life. He's done it before. But this is the big one.

This is the murder trial of the century. And Kane has killed to get the best seat in the house.

But there's someone on his tail. Someone who suspects that the killer isn't the man on trial.

Kane knows time is running out - he just needs to get to the conviction without being discovered.

FOUR UNSOLVED MURDERSIn 1959, The Walker family murders shook Florida. At one time, 587 people were considered suspects - but 60 years later the investigation remains unsolved. ONE FINAL CASEFormer FBI agent Brigid Quinn is trying to enjoy life after work. But when The Walker case comes up, she's only too happy to postpone retirement a little longer.A THIRD KILLER ON THE RUNQuinn is reluctant to draw comparisons with another high-profile case of the time: the Clutter family murders, made infamous by Capote's In Cold Blood. But the similarities are impossible to ignore, and perhaps Perry Smith and Dick Hickok, executed at the time, weren't acting alone - in both cases.
