She lapses into a coma and is unable to tell the police who abducted her but the handcuffs she wore are traced to United States Federal District Judge Glenn Ballard.

An anonymous tip leads the police to the isolated cabin where Amy was held, a getaway that belongs to the upright and honorable Glenn Ballard. Glenn hires superstar defense attorney Jackie Flowers to represent him. Her job becomes even tougher when Ketamine is found in his medicine cabinet and a video shows him in the cabin with Amy. The judge insists he was framed so Jackie goes to court trying to prove her client's innocence, something she has a difficult time believing.

Stephanie Kane writes legal thrillers that are on a par with John Grisham and Scott Turow. The court room scenes are incredibly realistic, hard hitting and action-packed. EXTREME INDIFFERENCE gives the audience a good representation at how the justice system works with the legal in fighting between the prosecutor, the defense attorney and at times even the judge. The protagonist has overcome dyslexia to become a good defense attorney that readers will admire.
