When she arrives Isabelle is assigned to work as Lisa Kinne's assistant in special projects. She learns that she is the replacement for Marcia who died when she was pushed in front of a train. A company friend warns Isabelle other deaths of employees have occurred and one worker Kenny remains missing. Becky dedicates a show to Kenny and places a life sized picture of him in the street level window of Becky Belden's Enterprises where everyone can see it. When Lisa drowns in her swimming pool and a man enters her house to kill Isabelle, she knows something sinister is going on at the company and all the deaths are related and intends to prove it.

The heroine is a brave individual who refuses to ignore crimes being committed even when one of the suspects is her lover, a top executive in Becky's business.
