Runaway Jury

Celeste Wood builds a case against a gun company who illegaly sold a gun to the man who killed her husband. When the jury is being picked, a man named Rankin Fitch is hired to pick twelve jurors who will give a verdict in favour of the gun company. In a way, Fitch is an evil Sherlock Holmes. He can read people by looking at them. When Nick Easter is chosen as one of the jurors, he conspires with his girlfriend, Marlee. She tries to play both the lawyer defending the widow, Wendall Rohr, and Fitchby telling them to pay her ten million dollars to "buy their verdict". Fitch tries to stay one step ahead of her, but Nick and Marlee are always two steps ahead.
