Famous songwriter, Maggie Fitzgerald, buys a vacant house in a tiny town in Maryland, as far from the public eye as possible. Maggie's husband had died under mysterious circumstances before she purchased the house and Maggie was tired of always being in the public eye. She was tired of people wondering about her husband's death. She was tired of always being watched. She was just tired.
The house she bought had been vacant for many years and restoring it to its original state was taking more time and energy than Maggie had anticipated. She hired a local landscaping company and meets the owner, Cliff Delaney, who has more secrets than the house itself. And then the mystery begins. While landscaping, a body is unburied - not a transient's corpse but the body of the previous owner who everyone had thought only missing, not murdered.
