Some thrillers make the mind race. Some keep the heart hammering. Sean Connery plays a Harvard Law professor who reopens a murder investigation based on an allegation that a confession was coerced by a maverick lawman.

But he has a rival who is also determined to discover the truth - the Catholic Inquisitor; a man of God who uses instruments of the Devil to torture and torment his suspects…
