Decades-old photos of a multiple homicide are found in Samantha Reid's newly refurbished dry cleaning store. Horrified, she takes them to the police and later discovers that the last surviving memeber of the family, houseboat entrepreneur Ryan Davidson, wants to know who killed his family and why.

The concept of "why bad things happen to good people" comes up again--as it does in many Christian books--and is handled well.
