Five years after the brutal slaying of her husband, software technology executive Jill Shannon is finally ready to take the next step in her life. With her wedding to Phoenix Arizona prosecuting attorney Conner Manning just eight weeks away, the only cloud on Jill's horizon is her future father-in-law's political ambitions for his son. Jill has dark secrets in her past. Secrets she can't afford to have exposed under the relentless lights of a political campaign.
Then the murder of a reporter brings the cops straight to Jill's doorstep. When Phoenix Detective David Shaw turns up at Jill's door asking questions, he has no idea what a lethal Pandora's Box he's just opened. Was the womanizing reporter killed by a jealous husband, or was it related to his drug use? Or did it have something to do with the secret expose the reporter was working on? Jill Shannon looks like a dead-end lead but Shaw can't shake the feeling the beautiful widow has secrets she's not sharing.
As Shaw finds himself drawn deeper into a twisted labyrinth of lies and danger, one thing becomes clear: some vows are made out loud in front of witnesses. But some vows are made in silence, and witnesses can't be left alive.
