Synopsis: They say big-city problems don't happen here. They're wrong. That's why psychologist Kelly Chapman is so concerned about fourteen-year-old Maggie Winston. She's a straight-A student who's developed a sudden interest in an older man. A man she knows only as Mac.

Deputy Samantha Jones, Kelly's longtime friend, is worried, too. She has been ever since a local businessman killed his wife and then himself. Since a kid was caught selling drugs. Since the discovery of a mysterious chemical dump on Kyle Evans's farm. Kyle, her former fiancé and current lover…

Are all these things connected? That's what Sam and Kelly are beginning to think. And that means someone in Chandler is lying.
