A little girl dies in her bed when her house is bombarded with bullets from an automatic gun. Her father and brother are unharmed.

Nick works on the case of a dead computer geek in a sealed room with only one exit. His three employees who were working on the other side of the door are all suspects. Written by Ploy P.
