Ebony is investigating a series of cold cases, and other missing women's profiles bear a striking resemblance to Lissie's. She's willing to stake her career on the hooker being the key to solving these serial crimes. However, Jessie is the major obstacle to her investigation- she won't give up Lissie's location. Jessie's in a bind. She wants to help Ebony, but she can't compromise her client, her boss, or her legal ethics. To catch the killer, can Jessie and Ebony put aside their past? Can they persuade Lissie to identify her assailant to prevent future attacks?
