    Who slaughtered Jared and Carla Walker and their young son in their own home? Only their teenage daughter, the sole survivor, knows the truth. But it’s buried in her traumatized mind - leaving Detective Wade Jackson to weigh a tangle of inconclusive evidence and size up a gallery of suspects. A gang of carjackers may have graduated to home invasion and homicide, but Jackson’s not ruling out a bitter brother-in-law convinced the Walkers ripped him off big-time, a young heroin addict in forbidden love with the family’s daughter, or the former employer Jared Walker had on the blackmail hook.
