A woman named Maya calls the Lancashire Police Force, frightened and scared for her life. In the most subtle way possible, she informs that her life is in imminent danger. And she needs help. Detective Joanna Wolff has just returned from her therapy after the Kaitlyn Becker case, and is eager to get back to work. She joins her squad and drives to the residence of Maya Menon. But what she discovers is a twist no one expected at all. Maya Menon was murdered. Not now, not after she had called for help. But she was murdered seven years ago.
