When Becca Winstone's son, Michael, disappears while studying abroad, there is nothing that will stop her from getting him back. She begins her search in Rome, where Michael was last known to be, and tracks clues across Europe, seeking help from old friends and opening old wounds along the way.

As Raydor attempts to mend fences and gain the trust and confidence of her detectives -- her biggest foe in that regard is Lt. Provenza -- she leads a unit that works more closely than Johnson ever did with other police and prosecutors to build airtight cases.
When lawyer and former first daughter Hayes Morrison is faced with the choice of taking a job with her nemesis, New York District Attorney Conner Wallace, or going to jail for cocaine possession -- hurting her mother's Senate campaign in the process -- the choice is easy.

It doesn't hurt that the new position gives her a shot at turning things around with her powerful political family in the process.
