When ex soap star Catherine Austin writes a biography of her late father, actor Michael Austin, the inclusion of a letter that appears to be a death threat from his rival Billy Morley forces the team to reopen the 1992 case into his death.
Austin died on stage during the opening night performance of "Death at the Masked Ball" in what the original investigation concluded was a tragic accident. But having been responsible for pulling the trigger of the prop gun that killed her husband, his widow -- actress Helen Brownlow -- has spent the last 16 years consumed with guilt, only now finding the strength to perform again. Will raking over the past push the already fragile actress over the edge?
A motley crew of retired police officers re-opens troublesome cases that were never laid to rest.
