"In the small, sleepy town of Idyll, Connecticut, Police Chief Thomas Lynch assists police officer Michael Finnegan to uncover clues to his sister's disappearance two decades ago. Charlestown, Massachusetts, 1972: Rookie cop Michael Finnegan gets a call from his mother. His youngest sister, Susan, has disappeared, the same sister who ran away two years earlier. Anxious not to waste police resources, Finnegan advises his family to wait and search on their own. But a week turns into two decades, and Susan is never found. Idyll, Connecticut, 1999: In the woods outside of town, a young woman's corpse is discovered. When Police Chief Thomas Lynch notices that Finnegan seems unusually disturbed by the case, Lynch digs a little deeper and learns of Finnegan's missing sister. Despite their prickly relationship, Lynch makes a bargain with his officer: He will investigate the cold case of Finnegan's long-lost sister while Finnegan looks for clues to the body found in the woods. Both cases reveal old secrets, including revelations about a man everyone thought they knew who was hiding things his entire career"--
