Xavier Racine is a feared presiding judge at Criminal Court. His nickname is ‘The Two Figure Judge’, because he always hands down sentences of at least 10 years. Everything changes dramatically the day Racine meets Birgit Lorensen-Coteret. She is on the jury trying a man accused of homicide. Six years earlier, Racine fell in love with the same woman. Almost in secret. She is perhaps the only woman he has ever loved.
