The search for the missing woman takes a strange turn when a body is discovered during the excavation of a nearby quarryand it's not Joan. It's also not the only body buried at the site. Maggie doesn't have much to go on, because the victims are not at all similarat least, not at first glance. When a pattern finally emerges, it's clear that Joan is in grave danger, if she's even still alive.
