    Payden Beck begins his career as a police officer, eager to serve. At the end of his first week, his field-training officer, Richard LaMont, invites him home for dinner, introducing Payden to his eccentric, much-younger wife, Ana. Ana approves.

    Richard is called away to work during Payden's visit, but Payden is happy to stay and watch over Ana. Their weekend is pleasant, sterile. Richard approves, as well. But, when Richard is found dead in his home Monday morning, Payden's time spent with Ana—and their chemistry—make Payden the prime suspect.

    The more Payden learns of Richard's life—with Ana's assistance—the deeper the mystery of Richard's murder becomes, and every revelation leads to greater confusion. Things can seem perfect... even when they're inescapably horrifying.
