Stackhouse's troubles start when he becomes obsessed with a local murder mystery in which a husband is suspected of killing his wife. He also cheats on his wife with a beautiful young woman (Haley Bennett). So when Clara turns up dead in a manner similar to the unsolved murder, Stackhouse is in hot water.
