|Plot Summary of Murder.com|
Bud Nevers is murdered after a mysterious young lady shows up at a party he and his wife were hosting.
After her husband is killed, Angie Nevers learns a secret that makes her wonder if she even knew her husband at all, even after 25 years of marriage.
Tom Hoffman investigates Bud's untimely death, frustrated by locked computer files. The files they could open suggested the company was clean--too clean. And they couldn't find the dummy business a young accountant warned Bud about.
The evidence keeps pointing back to Ken Weber, Bud's partner. Ken is uncooperative and stood to gain a lot from Bud's death. He becomes angry and hostile, taking it out on his wife and kids.
