The story centers around Michal "Mike" Madigan, a forensic pathologist, and Detective Tyler Mason. Tyler just moved from LA to Emerald Lake to embrace the quiet small town life.

Tyler's boss Jim makes him apologize to Mike and bury the hatchet. They start getting along and find they enjoy spending time together.
Then a body is found by the lake. To Mike it seems way too familiar. She finds that she is having to deal with things of the past and a God she doesn't trust all the while Tyler is a rock for her and strong in his faith.
Who is it that's killing these young women? Why does Mike seem to be at the center of it? Will they find out who it is before it's too late.
