Having served her time, Nickel has sought an opportunity to heal from personal setbacks and discover a new purpose in life. Meanwhile, Aryn has become a renowned historian, inspired by her grandfather’s career as the first journalist on Bishop’s Island.

Only after seeking Nickel’s help does she establish a connection between the two cases. In search of an object referred to as The Parcel, and with a murderer with unfinished business on their trail, the adventure for these women really begins!
