A rural New Zealand vacation turns poisonous.

Antiquities expert Annalisse Drury and tycoon Alec Zavos are at an impasse in their relationship when Alec refuses to clear up a paternity issue with an ex-lover.

Frustrated with his avoidance when their future is at stake, Annalisse accepts an invitation from an acquaintance to fly to New Zealand—an idyllic escape from the recent turbulence in her life.

Trouble follows Annalisse to her cottage getaway on the family sheep farm.

Alec asks a mutual friend and detective, Bill Drake, to accompany her on the flight. But not long after their arrival she's confronted by two peculiar deaths - either accidental, or the deliberate acts of a psychopath.

Local investigators are closing both cases too quickly. They want Annalisse to exit the country before she unearths the town's dirty secrets.

As she and Bill pursue their own leads at serious cost, the dual mysteries force Annalisse to question everything she thought she knew about family ties, politics, and the art of small-town betrayal.
