The weekly newspaper investigates "the political machinations that influenced events" prior to the suicide of Harry Lee Coe, the state attorney for Hillsborough County (Tampa), Florida. The story reveals that "Coe never willingly allowed his office to investigate public corruption - even when evidence was glaringly obvious." The investigation follows the career path of the general attorney and points out multiple problems in his personal and professional life - addiction to greyhound racing, gambling debts, dubious accounts and untruthfulness on state financial disclosure documents.
