Agent Maggie O'Dell is supposed to be on vacation. But at the request of her friend, psychologist Gwen Patterson, she goes to Meriden, Connecticut to find out what happened to a patient of Gwen's. The patient, Joan Begley, had gone up for the funeral of her grandmother, but then disappears from her hotel. Maggie O'Dell gets dragged into the police investigation by the local sheriff, hoping for some help from the FBI profiler, but also for a way "to cover his a--" in case things go wrong. And they do!
