Episodes feature in-depth interviews with leading law enforcement personnel combined with stylized re-enactments, illustrating how illusive offenders evaded capture for years before being undone by persistent police work.

Stylized re-enactments tell stories of actual crimes that have a similar moral: choosing to trust someone can be a life or death decision. One moment, the world seems so safe; the next, it becomes completely unrecognizable, all because someone betrays the trust of a family or social circle, leading to paranoia and suspicion and ultimately a cold-blooded murder. The husband, the best friend, the business partner, the stockbroker, the neighbor and the mistress are left looking over their shoulder, living in fear of the killer, or the truth, or being caught in a lie. As the investigation unfolds and secrets are laid bare, it produces a horrific realization: the victim was killed by someone they trusted.
