Emma Paxton has been in and out of foster care since her mother abandoned her when she five. So when she connects with a twin sister she never knew she had, Emma is excited at the prospect of finally having a real family. However, Emma's dream comes crashing down when she arrives to meet her sister, Sutton, only to find that Sutton is dead, and her killer expects Emma to assume Sutton's life...or else. Now it's a race to solve Sutton's murder without anyone finding out who she truly is or suffer the same fate.
