Applegate is a town where not a lot happens ... until now.

Applegate is a small town where everyone knows each other ... or thought they did.


But then Marcus Dillon finds himself on trial for the recent murder of Charles Hanratty - and the sole chance he has is the testimony of his childhood friend Sash. Because only she knows the truth about that night, fifteen years ago, when they broke into Hanratty's house.

And then there's Lana, Sash's sister. Lana knows the difference between right and wrong. She sees things. She remembers them. Someone just needs to ask her the right questions.

Applegate is a small town where not a lot happens ... until now.
