Page 69 contains an important scene in the book: a discussion between Dan and Nina in which Dan expresses his hesitancy to take on the case of Legally Dead. Nina tells him that she thinks that Legally Dead is innocent, and that's why she's on board. However, she also tells Dan that he has to have his own reasons for becoming involved. As Dan considers the issue, he realizes that representing Legally Dead might be his last, best chance to put his own life back on track. The page ends with Dan pressing the send button to file his notice of appearance with the court that he would be counsel of record in the murder trial of Legally Dead.
