After a failed marriage deepens detective Ethan James depression and he unceremoniously takes early retirement from the NYPD, Ethan has a big decision to make; spiral even further into despair by the constant everyday reminders of his current professional dismay and personal failures, or start a new life in rural Heaven's Valley, Idaho, where his former partner on the force had emigrated following his retirement. Ethan opted for the latter in hopes of getting back to simplicity while enjoying a quiet existence. Nothing could have been further from the truth.
Once situated in Heaven's Valley, Ethan doesn't have to look for something to do; it finds him in the form of Courtney Dean. Her husband, Maxwell Dean, the former principal of the local high school was accused of murdering a young girl before taking his own life. Courtney is certain the conclusions of the police officials were false and attempts to hire Ethan, the now retired former NYPD detective to clear her husband's good name. Determined to put his former occupation behind him, Ethan refuses at first to help the widow. However, constant persistence on her part wears Ethan down and he agrees merely to examine the evidence. What he unearths is more than anyone in the sleepy tourist town could ever imagine. The truth will bring to light a cloud of secrecy that the residents of pristine and idyllic Heaven's Valley may never recover from.
