But when she discovers the body of a tramp bludgeoned to death in a local park, her grief emerges raw and fresh. Reluctant to get drawn into the investigation of another death, Marlo finds she has no choice when the police point the finger at her boss and friend of many years, Harold. Perhaps in solving this new mystery, she will at last be able to put her own ghosts to rest.
