Attorney Drew Morgan and her partner Stephen are called to the scene of a bank robbery in a small town at the tip of Cape Cod where they find a dead suspect covered by the body of a dead German shepherd. While investigating the murder, Drew is faced with an array of witnesses, including a Cuban-Japanese drag performer named Mango and a middle-aged couple—one of whom makes ice cream cones for a living and the other who cleans Elvis' house.
As the duo struggles to solve the mystery, Drew is also trying to unravel a personal mystery of her own. Her photographer lover of ten years, Maggie, left her six months earlier without a word. When she meets Dr. J.J. Austin, who serves as the town's makeshift coroner, little does Drew know that the doctor holds the key to Maggie’s whereabouts.
