Doctor Jeffrey Logan, daytime TV's most loved psychiatrist, has a top-rating talk show seen around the world. The perfect picture is completed by a beautiful, talented wife, Stephanie, who is the loving mother of their teenage son and daughter.
This cosy domestic scene is shattered by a bullet. Stephanie is killed instantly at the kitchen table, the hunting rifle used at close range causing catastrophic damage.
When "Doctor Jeff" confesses to his wife's murder, Boston lawyer David Cavanaugh is appointed as his defence counsel. But Cavanaugh and Logan's dead wife went to law school together, and from what he remembers of his friend, nothing is making sense. Then the unthinkable happens: evidence starts pointing not to Doctor Jeff, but to Stephanie's son, JT.
Soon, Cavanaugh realises that though this family has a dark secret, it may not be the one the popular Doctor Jeff insists on revealing to the world. With the Logan children unwilling to reveal what really happened, and Doctor Jeff one step ahead of his defence team, Cavanaugh must race to uncover the truth, before more lives, including those closest to him, are lost.
