Wealthy families seem to attract scandals, and the Bassetts are no different. They bury theirs with the utmost discretion, but when one of their own is murdered, secrets are unearthed. Canaan Valley Sheriff Ward Sterling enlists the help of sisters Andrea Flynn and Kathleen Williamson to navigate the family's complex inner workings, because they're friends with Hadley, one of the Bassett siblings. They're glad to oblige, as the prime suspect is their friend, Deputy Willard Hill.
Several people stand to profit from the untimely death, and a few more had reasons to dislike the deceased. In spite of a serious threat from the murderer, Andrea and Kathleen persist in their quest to exonerate Willard. If they don't act fast, they'll be the killer's next victims.
