Policewoman Christine Lane felt the humiliation like a slap. Transferred to this sleepy island station, she could almost hear her career screeching to a halt.
During a violent protest on the island, a resident is found dead and Christine is hurt. Her boss threatens to sack her for incompetence and she vows to maintain a low profile.
When the homicide leads dry up, Christine is shocked when investigators move on to their next case. So she secretly gathers information on suspects, digging up local dirt. When Christine is ambushed, she knows she is closing in on the perpetrator. Can she flush out the murderer before she is shut down for good?
