Eric is attending a party to honor his dad passing over the reins of the company to him, when suddenly tragedy strikes. Eric's smart and beautiful wife, Kate Warner, is found dead, and life, as he knows it, is over. Overseeing the case is the unflappable and formidable Detective Andrea Cornell. She immediately puts the grieving husband in her crosshairs, but, as always, secrets seep out about this seemingly perfect family and turn their world upside down. As Eric battles to prove his innocence and save the family's company, he discovers that his beloved Kate and the rest of his family are not who they appeared to be. Detective Cornell also has cast a wide net over the whole Warner family. There's Eric's charming and lovable finance-magnate father, John Warner. The father of three children, he built his private equity firm on a model of honesty and morality, but Kate's death puts his succession plans on hold, and he may find that his stunning business achievement is really a house of cards.
