Randall Kirbo had disappeared during spring break; as far as the police are concerned, the kid had just decided to take off. His parents don't agree with that theory, and Truman Smith has some questions of his own. They get louder when he learns about the discovery of the body of a young woman, and the more the police deny any connection between the murder and the disappearance, the clearer it becomes that Randall is in serious trouble - if he's alive. Too quickly, Truman Smith realizes that he's in trouble, too. He can't trust his sources, he can't trust his witnesses, and it's becoming clear that he might not be able to trust his friends. That leaves him with his cat, too many theories, and a target painted on his back.
