FBI special agent Carolyn Monahan has come to Boston for one last case. After this, she's going to make major changes in her life. But first she must deal with working with homicide detec-tive Conor Rafferty. Ten years ago their romantic involvement put them in the wrong place at the wrong time and Carolyn's sister was murdered. Guilt chased Carolyn away.
Now a serial killer is on the loose in Boston and evidence reveals a connection to the decade-old crime. It also reveals that the killer might be preoccupied with Carolyn. As they work together, Conor's long-suppressed feelings for Carolyn resurface, and he is determined to keep her safe in the hope that they might have a future.
