This synopsis report prepared by Katie Becker
A woman's killer goes free due to a technicality--a technicality blamed on Nick Fourcade who is told to keep away from the case. But he can't. Neither can Annie Broussard, who was with the woman when she died. She too, is warned off. Continuing with the case means forming an alliance with Fourcade, a man who's motives and methods Annie doesn't trust. As the case develops with Annie and Nick at the core, they not only get closer to the killer, but closer to each other.
