Murder, corruption, justice.......time is running out for Rudy Kelly.In a small Florida town near Lake Okeechobee, an innocent young man's fate hangs in the balance. Rudy Kelly, bi-racial and borderline retarded, is targeted by the local police as a suspect in a brutal murder. Convinced of her son's innocence, his mother hires a famous defense attorney, but loses him when her money runs out. His case is turned over to the drunken public defender, and Rudy is framed by the police and prosecutor and convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death.After spending ten years on death row, top trial lawyer Jack Tobin, a boyhood friend of his father's, learns of Rudy's situation and decides to take on the case. Jack engages in a non-stop race against time to uncover evidence to exonerate Rudy and overturn his conviction.Through fierce courtroom battles, legal maneuverings, surprise twists and turns, Jack Tobin fights to see justice done against Jimmy DiCarlo, the well-connected Miami criminal lawyer steeped in corruption.More than a typical thriller, THE MAYOR OF LEXINGTON AVENUE tells a story of enduring friendships, love and loss, promises kept and loyalties fulfilled, all against a backdrop that sweeps from the streets of New York City to the bayous and barrios of Florida.
