  • Neglected by her workaholic husband, a young wife, Maren Abbott, meets a man through Wandering Eye - a networking website designed to facilitate extramarital liaisons. Charming as he is, she realizes she can't go through with the affair. When he is found brutally murdered in their hotel room, infidelity is the least of Maren's worries as she finds herself in the cross-hairs of a serial killer who uses the website to trawl for his next victims.

  • In Brooklyn, Michael Hollis and Anne Federman are found shot to death in Michael's bedroom, both their left ring fingers severed but their wedding rings still remaining at the scene. The sensitive issue is that they are both married to other people, the thought being that they were having an affair. Michael's wife and children are away on vacation giving them an alibi, and Anne's husband professes not to know Michael or that his wife was having an affair with anyone. Regardless, Homicide Detectives Jacqueline Fitzpatrick and Kyle Solomon, the former who is leading the investigation, place Mr. Federman at the top of the suspect list as the spurned husband with seeming anger issues. Meanwhile, Maren Abbott is feeling like a neglected wife as her husband, Connor Abbott, going through his surgical residency, is at the hospital more often than he is at home, and when he is at home he's too tired to do anything. Maren's feelings are exacerbated by the fact that she, an investment banker, is between jobs, and is feeling restless. It isn't until her friend and former coworker Graham Ball makes it clear to her that he would like to pursue a sexual relationship with her that Maren contemplates having an affair for the first time in her marriage. Not wanting to have the affair with someone she knows, she, using an alias, signs up on Wandering Eye, a cheating spouses website. Through the website, Maren meets Lucas Manning, a Pennsylvania pharmaceutical rep in New York on business to who she feels a connection if only because he too is feeling neglected by but still loves his physician spouse. After meeting Lucas a few times in public, Maren ultimately cannot go through with the affair, either with him or anyone else. After parting company with Lucas for the final time, Maren eventually learns on the news that he was murdered in his JFK area hotel room. Not public knowledge, he was shot and his left ring finger was severed. Also not public knowledge, the other aspect, beyond the MO, tying Lucas' death to that of Hollis/Federman murders is that the latter pair also met through Wandering Eye. Despite knowing nothing about the murder, Maren has to decide if she will come forward about she having met Lucas at the possible risk to her marriage, she who may even be considered a suspect. If Maren does not come forward, she may not discover this information and the thought that her life too may be in danger at the hands of this serial murderer as unfinished business.
