Heir to her family's successful children's book and merchandising business, Amy Stedman arrives in North Carolina with the task of clearing out the house of her deceased grandmother--whose murder remains unsolved. While sorting through her grandmother's things, Amy begins to reflect on her own marriage to a man who seems more in love with her legacy than with her. Similarly, Amy's mother's marriage to her father--brash young businessman and opportunist Jeff Voygt--was filled with doubt and deceit. Furthermore, soon after Amy was born, her mother, Maxine, killed herself. Or did she? Now, in her grandmother's house, the memories of the deaths of these two women play menacingly with Amy's mind. Was her mother's death really a suicide? And if not, can Amy escape her family's killer?
