Even worse her husband Joe Burkett is shot to death in front of her in Manhattan’s Central Park though Maya is able to give a good description of the masked killers to an NYPD homicide detective. Maya is already dealing with the nightmares from her combat experiences and the murder of her sister Claire four months earlier while Maya was stationed in Kuwait. Then weeks after Joe’s funeral a recently installed nanny cam shows her two year old daughter Lily crawling onto Joe’s lap. Other shocks follow.
