Charlene Grant is a woman about to die. She’s counting down to her own murder, four days, a handful of hours. She has spent the past year preparing for January 21st – learning to shoot, run, box – defend. Two years to the day, one of her two best friends was strangled in her own home. Exactly one year later, her remaining best friend suffered the same fate. Charlene knows someone is coming for her. She knows that her friends trusted this person, let their murderer in their home—there were no signs of forced entry—that’s why she has spent all this time isolating herself and preparing. Charlene’s only involvement with the world has been through the telephone wires as a graveyard shift police office dispatcher. That is until she seeks out Boston Detective D.D. Warren.

“Four days from now, I’m expecting to be murdered.”  Those are the memorable words Charlene utters to D.D. Warren when she tracks D.D. down at a crime scene. While this Boston cop may have another case to manage and a lot of adjustments in her personal life, she finds herself quickly captivated by the situation. How often does a detective get a chance to solve a murder before it happens?
