Esmée Da Costa is a twenty-seven-year-old true crime documentary maker and vlogger. Her dad, who was from Ecuador, died when she was seven. She was raised by her mom, Portia, a well-known author of true-crime books.
Esmée's two-year-old son Rhys, is her whole world, but she had to escape an abusive relationship with his father. Rhys, who witnessed his father attacking his mother, doesn't talk. His selective mutism was a response to the trauma.
Esmée arrives in Red Ridge, South Dakota to investigate the Groom Killer murders and faces a mixed reaction. Some people want to share their opinion about the killings with her. Others, like Brayden Colton, the K9 cop who is half-brother to the chief suspect, want her to keep her nose out of their business.

She knows that Red Ridge has been devastated by the murders and she doesn't want to make things worse. She's intrigued by Brayden Colton.

One of four siblings, all with different mothers, his father is Rusty Colton, owner of the Pour House, a dive bar in the sketchy part of town. Stubborn as a mule, when Brayden makes his mind up, he usually gets his way. Then he actually sees Esmée...
Can they save their family?
