Abby Wilson, the newly installed Chief of Police of West Warwick, Connecticut, is challenged by a horrific double homicide unlike anything ever to have occurred in the bucolic college town. Leading a police force unfamiliar with crimes of such savagery, navigating social prejudices and misogyny, and facing increasing scrutiny from the Mayor, Wilson’s investigation eventually leads to Zephyr Cove, Vermont, and two of its most seemingly ordinary residents, chambermaid Rita Quigley and hairdresser Conrad Zimmer. Uncovering the circumstances that led to the crime forces Wilson and her team to question their own identities, their own interpersonal conflicts and judgments, and come to a greater understanding of the fragility of the human psyche.
