John March is a man whose job has too often interfered with his private life only too often. First when he was a cop his wife was murdered by a serial killer he was investigating when he was a cop. Later after he'd painstakingly pieced together a relationship, the new love of his life, Jane Lu, walked out on him when one of his cases turned nasty. So March is surprised to find her on his doorstep three years later, disturbed to find he is still deeply attracted to her and devastated to hear that not only has she got married, she is also pregnant. Against his better judgement and knowing that the attraction that they once felt for each other is being rekindled, March heads to Los Angeles with her.Her husband, Malcolm Haskell has been acting strangely and has now been subpoenaed by the FBI who are looking into his business affairs. As Haskell's irrational behaviour mounts, it is clear to him and others that Jane and March are being drawn together. Soon after, Haskell is found dead on his yacht, a single gun shot wound to his head and compromising pictures of March and Jane next to his body. March never wanted this new case to get personal, but now he has no option to find out what dark forces have been aligned against Jane. As he does so, inevitably, he finds his own past is not far behind.
