Mark Louis and Kristy King become involved with murder when they visit Erin Blakely, a college friend of Kristy’s whom she hasn’t seen in half-a-dozen years. During their visit, Erin’s husband Pete is murdered just as Jeremy, an old college boyfriend of Erin’s, shows up, newly released from prison and claiming he is the father of Erin’s daughter Raven. Erin vehemently denies Jeremy’s paternity, accusing him of murdering her husband. Erin moves to New York, and Mark invites her to join the AWB Theatre Company. The accusation against Jeremy doesn’t stick, and he follows Erin and Raven to New York. Hoping to uncover the truth about Erin’s tangled life, Mark and Kristy decide to investigate four men from Erin’s past and present—her two college boyfriends, one of whom has fathered her daughter Raven, her late husband Pete, and Bob Collins, a new acquaintance from New York.
