Brooke Rawlings is a professional reporter who was unprepared when her sister, Serena, died and left her the guardian to her young nephew Jeremy. Five years pass and Brooke is shocked when Jeremy suddenly begins to withdraw from her and his friends, shutting everyone out and showing no remorse as his grades begin to fail. His teacher, Matthew Grant, tells Brooke he thinks Jeremy’s behavior is due to the use of drugs, but Brooke refuses to believe this. She knows there’s more to it than Jeremy is letting on. As Brooke begins to dig into Jeremy’s life, and in turn her sister’s death, Brooke is shocked when she and her investigators realize that Serena didn’t just die… she was murdered. This leads Brooke on a hunt for a missing student, a murderer, and mainly a path that could either allow her to find the love of her life, or to lose it to the one man at the top of her suspect list.
