While on patrol one evening, Bowditch receives a call for help: a woman has struck a deer on a secluded road. When he arrives on the scene, he finds blood in the road, but both the driver and the deer have vanished. The details of the disappearance seem eerily familiar as seven years earlier, lobsterman Erland Jefferts was convicted of rape and murder, but his supposed victim was later found alive in what was possibly an elaborate frame up. For Bowditch, doing nothing is not an option.
