Carly Paladino, an investigator for a large and prestigious San Francisco security firm, re-evaluates her life and decides to strike out on her own. Her first case involves the death of the daughter of an old and moneyed Pacific Heights family. A mysterious young man is arrested for the murder, but Carly suspects the real murderer is inside the Hanover mansion. Streetwise private eye Noah Lang gets involved, but he struggles with the consequences of his last assignment. He was employed by a lobbyist who suspected his wife was cheating, and while on stake-out the wife kills herself. At least that's what the police think, but Lang believes he was hired to provide an alibi. He knows if he convinces the police he will become their prime suspect. Can he put this behind him and come up with a solution to murder?
