Martin LaBurdge sets out to rebuild his shattered life after
the death of his wife by focusing his energy on an invention that is certain to
revive his stale career. Only before he
has the opportunity to do so, news of his uncle's death sends misfortune his
way once again. With an unexpected
twist in his professional objectives, Martin departs Chicago for England, into
the remote countryside of Devon where he is faced with the task of settling his
uncle's affairs. Little did he know
that this journey would forever change his life.
Drawing on a system of living cultivated from his late wife,
Martin uses his intuition to lead him to a horrific discovery. Now, with the knowledge of his uncle's
murder fueling him, he manipulates circumstances for Sara Jenkins who soon
learns the truth behind her father' s death.
Joined by tragedy and driven by an obsession to bring
justice to a double murder, Martin and Sara begin sorting through
inconsistencies and delve into the quirky personalities of those connected to the
estate of Buxton. After finding the
first of three mechanical drawings, the motive for the murders is exposed, but
the danger ahead could never have been anticipated.
