Back on the case, his search for her murderer soon becomes an all-consuming race to stay ahead of a serial killer.

Meanwhile, Cardinal must manage his own precarious family issues and secrets, and keep a watchful eye on his new partner, Detective Lise Delorme, who he believes may have her own secret agenda.
