While on patrol in the central California foothills near Rocky Bluff, Officer Stacey Wilbur spots a car crashed into a giant oak tree. A woman is slumped against the steering wheel.
The woman is dead, but it’s soon apparent the crash had little to do with her death. There is a bullet hole behind her ear.
The car belongs to the minister of a local church, and it’s his wife who’s dead on the front seat. Officer Wilbur drives to the minister’s home to give him the bad news, which is met with aloofness bordering on unconcern. The typical “suspect the spouse first” theory ratchets up a few ticks in Stacey Wilbur’s analytical mind.
Before that jells, however, Wilbur learns there’s much more in the mix.

the one who often delivers bad news. He is soon to receive some of this
own. His wife, Marlene, often knows as much about what is going on with
the Rock Bluff P.D. as her husband, and she knows even more about the
other officers’ private lives. Officer Joe Guzzo has perfect wife and a
wandering eye. A knock-out, Officer Georgia Lindquist captures the
interest of all the single guys in the department and the notice of the
married ones. Two murders bring chaos to the beach community of Rocky
Bluff and keep Lt. Gilbreath busy as he faces a crisis of his own.
