The Plot

Meet Emily Byrne, an FBI agent who goes missing during the hunt for one of Boston's most notorious serial killers. After quite some time since her disappearance, she's considered dead in absentia. Six years later, she's found in a cabin in the middle of the woods without much memory of her life during the years prior. After she returns home she finds her husband has remarried and his new wife is raising their son. That's not the worst, now it seems Emily is implicated in a string of new murders. 

The cast

With such a gripping plot, you'd need just as great of a cast to bring it to life. Castle star Stana Katic is Emily Byrnes and we couldn't be happier - she's made for acting in the crime genre it seems. Patrick Heusinger (Casual; Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce) and Cara Theobold (Downton Abbey and the voice of Tracer in Overwatch) round up the cast.
