The wealthy, but dysfunctional, Fadden family, known for its vast business empire and local charities appears to have everything a family could want. Like their patriarch, Roger Fadden, they are content with their affluent lives. The exception is Mary Jo, who is bored and discontented with her cold and distant husband. Hoping to find a new dimension in her life, she joins a community philanthropy, whose members include the handsome and suave Darius Davis and the blue-eyed Mitch McCabe. When she makes choices that complicate her life, her position in the family is threatened.
But Roger and his family are hiding plenty of secrets like adultery, extortion, money laundering and, of course, murder. These secrets, however, are being guarded by a dead Indian and a special man and his strange-looking dog. When Mary Jo stumbles upon information that will destroy the future of the Fadden dynasty, she must choose between protecting her family or following her conscience.
