After being fired from her television journalist position in Los Angeles, she decided it was time to visit her family for the first time in many years. After the family visit, she’d head to Atlanta for an interview with CNN for a west coast position. Plans were made for her children, Alyssa and Dexter, to stay on the west coast with their individual biological fathers. En route, she was notified that her adolescent nephew Jayden had been murdered. She, her brother, Sheriff Luther Middleton, and a fellow detective, Mary O’Hanlon, were soon on the trail of the murderer. The tragedies increase as her son shows up in Savannah and becomes an unwitting victim in the murderous scheme.
