Dorrie was in the car with Joe the night his car skidded off the icy road and hit a tree. She doesn't want anyone to know she was there, that she was having an affair with her boss. She wants to keep her job and her family intact. So she flees.
Joe's wife, Karen, knew he was cheating but she didn't know who with. Now that she's on her own she can't shake the feeling that she's being watched.
Maggie Devlin is the insurance investigator handling Joe's claim, but she's suspicious - a man dies shortly after buying a big life insurance policy. The former cop can't help but dig around to see if she can figure out what really happened the night of the accident.
