Her first client is wealthy man, Charles Kunz, who is suddenly shot dead after a burglary incident in his house. Not wanting to leave the case unsolved, she makes an independent investigation apart from the police for she is compelled to know the why Charles has a premonition of his imminent death. This time she welcomes Richard's help who has vast resources and connections in the elite society. When her partner Walter has been accused of the murder and burglary after the missing items are found in his house, Samantha becomes enraged and works furiously to catch the real perpetrator and save her partner from lifetime imprisonment. Her suspicions point her to Charles' children – Daniel, who is a happy-go-lucky person with a drug addiction problem and Laurie, who runs a floundering real estate business who tries to keep her business and family reputation intact.
Mix into this cast is Richard's ex-wife, Patricia, who is now broke and wants to get Richard back. Patricia plays the damsel in distress in front of Richard but offers her favor to Daniel when Richard has no intention of financially helping her. Because Patricia is intimate with Charles' son, Samantha blackmails Patricia into helping her when she has caught Patricia stealing an expensive jewelry one time. Soon Samantha mingles into the lives of Charles's children to find out what really happened and who has done the deed in order to free her long-time friend.
