When an attorney is murdered on her doorstop in a wealthy DC enclave, Detective Earl Wallace and his new partner are assigned to the case. As the detectives uncover the details surrounding the suspicious death, a visit to the Medical Examiner provides evidence that sends their investigation into a tailspin.
Meanwhile, Dan Lord - a private investigator with a law degree who operates in the gray area of the legal system - has a new client. Hired by a congressman's wife who fears for her safety, Dan soon learns she isn't telling him the whole truth. A secret from her past has taken a deadly turn, and Dan's latest client is proving to be his most dangerous.
As Dan and the DC detectives work their respective cases, a random street crime brings them crashing together, revealing that both investigations are connected to a string of unsolved murders. Working as a team, each new piece of evidence puts Dan and the detectives closer to their suspect . . . and closer to danger.
To survive, they need to learn the truth behind one Terminal Secret.
