When Gabrielle Newman throws her cheating husband out, Stu cares more about the money than the breakup, getting more than his fair share from their house sale. An unexpected bequest offers Gabrielle a new start, and she tries to leave the past behind, heading north with Dan Monahan, the private investigator sent to find her.
Meanwhile, Stu has gotten entangled with organised crime in Eastern Europe and is desperate to pay his gambling debts. Gabrielle needs Dan's help to protect herself and her inheritance. Then Stu tracks down his ex-wife, and Gabrielle discovers just what the man she once loved is capable of, as her life is threatened. Can she and Dan find a way to stop Stu and his ruthless new friends?
