She continues to have contact with Fitch, and as time goes on, he learns that she has someone, Easter, on the inside, and Fitch realizes that Easter can control not only the jury's movements, but also the individual jurors' status.

Despite appearing to have Marlee on his side, Fitch also downloads some insurance by way of bribery and pressure on several of the jurors. As the trial winds to a close, Marlee makes a deal with Fitch - 10 million dollars for the verdict. She and Easter have proved to this point that they are able to manipulate the people on the jury, even making decisions as to who is actually on it, so Fitch has no reason to doubt her. They make a deal.

However, Fitch has not been able to find any concrete information on Marlee's background, despite his constant digging. Finally, some information surfaces - Marlee's parents both died of lung cancer. Fitch receives this information too late. The jury returns with a decision for the plaintiff to the tune of four hundred two million dollars, a landmark verdict that opens the tobacco companies up for what could be thousands of other lawsuits.

Flush with their ten million, Nicholas and Marlee meet up in the Cayman Islands, where Marlee uses the money to download and trade tobacco shares, taking advantage of the blow that has just hit the industry. She makes an additional eight million dollars, and in a surprise meeting with Fitch, gives the ten million back.
