The truth will set you free...Unless you're Cynthia Webber.
Cynthia Webber is a CPA student and widow who lost the love of her life in a tragic car accident several years ago. Left with a young son to provide for on her own, Cynthia continued to pursue her career in the auditing department of Darlington & Associates (D&A).
But when Cynthia discovers Jim Dunn’s body during the routine audit of D&A’s most prestigious and controversial client, Prairie Pipeline Company (PPC), her whole world is turned upside down. She finds her career and life threatened when Senior Partner David Jerew turns up unexpectedly at her son’s daycare, posing as her brother and threatening her not to talk about what she found.
When Cynthia ignores David’s threats and goes to the police, she finds herself alone and locked out of D&A. Cynthia turns to her best friend, investigative reporter Linda Reeves, to help her uncover David’s true motivation and get her life back just as a well known environmental activist is found murdered on PPC property.
Will Cynthia and Linda figure out who is targeting PPC and stop David before it's too late?

Here we find out a little bit more about Jim when his bravery falters after he has left the safety of his office to deal with a group of angry protesters on his own.
“Just go home. We can find another way to resolve this. Your protesting doesn’t accomplish anything.” Jim panicked as he saw that many of the protesters still had rocks in their hands. He wondered just how angry the mob was and whether they would have the nerve to throw the rocks when face to face with another human. There were empty beer cans littered on the ground, and Jim still had enough sense about him to realize there was no predicting what this mob might do. As he turned to head into the office for cover, he noticed a woman that didn’t look like she belonged with this group.
