Because Jake recently suffered a heart attack, they hire thirty-year-old Trevor Banks to help keep the boat motors running and to take rich vacationers out on the lake to fish. Two days after Trevor shows up, a body is found floating in the lake beneath the old wooden pier across the road. The police identify the man as one of the fishermen Jake took out on the lake the previous afternoon and immediately arrest him for the crime, the motive: robbery. Shocked, Amandas suspicions instead fall on their new boat mechanic, about whom they know next to nothing. When a computer search reveals that Trevor Banks doesnt exist, Amanda confronts him and learns that he is hiding out on the lake but refuses to tell her why, saying he doesnt want to drag her into his problems. Trevor instead suggests they team up to solve the murder since the cops arent looking elsewhere for the killer. Her ready cash dwindling fast, Amanda feels she has no choice but to trust the handsome man, but prays shes not making a deal with the devil . . . or the killer.
