The story of United States District Court Judge John J. Sirica's courageous battle to defeat the criminal conspiracy led by President Richard M. Nixon, to cover up his administration's secret and illegal program of espionage and political sabotage.  It was the program which came to be known as "Watergate."

When Judge Sirica, a life-long Republican and active Nixon supporter, became the presiding judge in 1972 for the trial of the Watergate burglars, he soon learned that he would have to shed all vestiges of party loyalty and political friendship in order to vindicate the rule of law and protect the United States Constitution.

To accomplish this, he was forced, at the age of 68, to take on the battle of a lifetime, one requiring him to summon up every ounce of moral courage he could muster.  This book tells the tale of his epic five-year judicial struggle against the staggering power of the American Presidency.

The inspiration for Donald J. Farinacci's first book, When One Stood Alone was the author's total fascination, as a young lawyer in 1972-74, with the abuses of governmental power during the Watergate scandal, and how one brave man, Judge John J. Sirica, was so instrumental in defeating the conspiracy by having the moral courage to apply only the Rule of Law.
