Fifteen years ago, Duncan Avery, an esteemed medical doctor, was convicted of killing his wife Marsha. Now, paroled and insistent about his resettling in his hometown in New Jersey, he is visited by his daughter, Nina Avery, a struggling actress in New York City who never stopped believing in her father's innocence. Her plans for a family reunion, complete with her two brothers Patrick, a successful investment banker, and Jimmy, a recovering drug addict, who had turned their backs on Duncan, are disturbed by yet another act of violence. Now Nina must delve deep into her family's and neighbors' past to catch the killer before she becomes his next victim.

    " OK story about a girl who's father went to jail for killing her mother, but she didn't believe he did it. When he's paroled, he also is killed. Suspects range from her hostile older brother to persons unknown. Well developed story. Characters were sort of bland. "
