The attackers kidnap the elderly grandfather and storm off into the night. Now senior policewoman Alex Morrow has been summoned to investigate the case. But there are so many mysteries.

Thomas returns to the family home to find his mother and sister in a state of numb shock. The head of the household is dead, yet their initial reaction is not that of grief, but relief.
