When she receives a call from a deranged man who knows everything about her, her family secrets are brought to light. She soon discovers that her father didn't just die in a car wreck-he was murdered, and now the killer is after Janelle and her loved ones.With nowhere else to turn, Janelle reaches out to a detective.

But the task proves easier said than done when the bodies begin piling up.
