When Violet is hired to prove the innocence of a convicted murderer, Cassie discovers that not only is an innocent man's life at stake, but also that solving a ten-month-old murder has its own unique challenges.
But what initially seems like it might be a straightforward case quickly becomes more complex with the discovery of a secret computer file, and an encryption even Violet can't crack.
Meanwhile, Cassie finds herself helping Brianne discover who's been stealing supplies from the hospital - a great distraction as Cassie avoids making a decision about going back to medical school.
As Violet and Cassie get closer to cracking the encryption, they find themselves embroiled in the middle of a conspiracy even Violet couldn't have predicted.
Will they be able to solve the case and give an innocent man his life back before they become the next victims?
