A couple expecting their first child is brutally murdered. The prime suspect is thescorned ex-wife with no knowledge of how she got there or what happened. It’s up to Detective Charlotte Pierce to unravel the mystery of the newlyweds’ murder. It looks like an open and shut case, but certain things are not adding up.
Despite pressures from her FBI Director father, Charlotte came to Mesquite County to escape the burdens of a big city police department. She has been through a lot and a quiet suburban community where nothing really happens is exactly what she is looking for.
Little does she know that this quiet community is filled with secrets of its own, including those within the police department. She could easily go with the flow, but she refuses to ignore even the smallest inconsistencies.
Was it the ex-wife or is the murderer still out there? Can Charlotte get to the truth before he kills again?
