In rural Marquesa, National Guard veteran Rich Garcia is found burned in his garage, which is locked from the outside. Patrick makes widow Maddy admit an affair with fellow vet police chief Trey Piller. Mechanic Mitchell Reese tells fellow vet Dave martin died in a similar arson three years earlier. Next Wayne Rigsby saves Piller from the next fire. All were started with the same, tricky accelerant, found in vet Ben Machado's barn. Jane discovers the town's secret treasure, a murderous secret and how dangerous setting a trap can be before the killer is caught in the act.

The fictional town in which this episode is set, Marquesas, is a nod to Moby Dick author Herman Melville
. Melville's book is based, in part, on his own experiences as a whaler. He joined the crew of the "Acushnet" in early 1841 but deserted since he found the conditions on board unbearable. Melville deserted the ship at the first stop, Nuku Hiva, capital of the Marquesas islands. See more
