The peaceful order of puppet-maker Polly Deacons back-to-nature rural life is violently interrupted when she finds her best friend Francys abusive husband lying dead in the dump with a hole in his chest. Whats worse, Francy cant remember what happened the night of the murder. The cops soon get involved...and in more ways than one, as Polly finds herself falling for hunky officer Mark Becker. Afraid that the police will arrest Francy for the murder and exasperated with their ineptitude, Polly decides that only she can get to the bottom of the mysterious murder. The situation comes to a head as the outspoken and resourceful Polly begins receiving threats to her life. As she searches for answers, Polly discovers that the puzzle often points inward and she is forced to question her values and her friendships. But where there is death, there is also grief and passion, and passion in Cedar Falls is never simple, and sometimes, as Polly discovers, it can also be deadly.
