After the devastating loss of her husband in Iraq, Morgan
Dane returns to Scarlet Falls, seeking the comfort of her
hometown. Now, surrounded by family, sheâ€™s finally found
peace and a promising career opportunityâ€”until her
babysitter is killed and her neighbor asks her to defend his
son, Nick, who stands accused of the murder.
Tessa was the ultimate girl next door, and the community is
outraged by her death. But Morgan has known Nick for years
and canâ€™t believe heâ€™s guilty, despite the damning evidence
stacked against him. She asks her friend Lance Kruger, an
ex-cop turned private eye, for help. Taking on the town, the
police, and a zealous DA, Morgan and Lance plunge into the
investigation, determined to find the real killer. But as
they uncover secrets that rock the community, they become
targets for the madman hiding in plain sight.
