The killer: pediatric surgeon Dr. Monika Harper; the victim: news shop owner and ex-military man Hank Cousineau.
Hank is found in the back of his store, dead from having his throat slit. The investigation first centers on a group of young thugs who were trying to extort money from the store owners. Then, the detectives have a look at Hank's camera, which contains dozens of photos of Dr. Monika Harper and her husband and child. They decide to look deeper into Monika's past and discover a secret she has been hiding all her life.
