Everyone has secrets. Some are small and mean nothing, others can change lives.
To the world Emma and Jude appear to be the perfect couple living a charmed life. She’s a professor he’s a successful art dealer who share a lovely home on Maine’s coast and enjoy life's luxuries. Sure, every relationship has cracks but this one was about to fracture.
On the morning Jude leaves for Boston to pick up valuable paintings, Emma’s happy world comes to an abrupt halt: Jude’s car is found torched and abandoned in another state, and he has disappeared. Words swirl around Emma- ‘someone was murdered in the car,’ ‘a woman was fished from the St. Charles that is a dead ringer for Emma’ and ‘he’s in the wind.’ But things spin out of control as she discovers the FBI has her under surveillance and terms normally associated with organized crime like RICO and money laundering are whispered with her name.
Bewildered, Emma is confident it all must be a huge misunderstanding. As Emma sets off on a frantic quest to uncover what Jude was keeping from her, the answers she finds shock her to her very core. Someone missed their mark the first time, and this time the stalker seems determined to finish the task. It’s not when she will die but how she will be killed that remains the pressing question. Can she outwit her assassin?
