The story is set in Montana. Two sisters, get missing from the highway on their way to Montana. Calls are made in this respect to Private Detective Cody Hoyt, his partner and love interest Cassie Dewell and Cody’s ex-wife Jenny Hoyt. These three must put their issues aside to solve the crime.

Then things take an unimaginably sinister turn. 

Things we like in season 1 

Beautiful Location 

First of all, the location chosen for the filming is amazing. The serenity and lush nature of the place are beautiful. It also might remind you that Sherlock Holmes once said that crime-ridden cities are far better than these remote, isolated locations where crimes would not even get noticed immediately. 

The Chemistry and performance

The actors shared really strong chemistry among themselves. They were natural, precise and presented a powerful performance throughout the season. An unforgettable performance was delivered by John Carroll Lynch as a highway Trooper.

Two young women, while travelling, crossed paths with a trucker. When they overtook him and drove past them, it made him angry and hungry for revenge. A golden opportunity arrives when the women realize their car was overheated and they must stop. This allows the Psycho trucker to catch up with the women to teach a lesson. 

A brush off with a psychopath never goes well and later events attest to this axiom.  The Kidnapped woman find another woman who was already abducted. The three discuss their plan to escape this hell. 

Each moment spent in the cage makes them realize it will not be easy to come out alive.

The biggest shocking moment of the show is that Cody Hoyt, the private detective, is shot point-blank in his car. It was a completely unexpected moment for fans and expert critics alike. It has once again highlighted the efficacy of David E.Kelley.

Season 2 

It is confirmed that season 2 is going to be there. It’s Kind of obvious though. When the lead detective gets shot from point black range by a person whom he considers to be his ally,  and victims are not yet saved, that leaves ample scope for a new season.
