Seasoned detective Emmett Carver is hired, despite a tainted episode in San Francisco, as chief detective in northern Californian small beach town Gracepoint, instead of local police detective Ellie Miller. Their first case is the death, a staged cliff jump 'suicide' after a stump trauma, of Danny Solano, pre-teen class buddy of Ellie's son, who secretly tries to delete all traces of their recent contacts. Local newspaper reporter Owen deduces the victim' identity and tips off a San Francscio major newspaper.
