Detective Lilly is asked to investigate the murder of a fireman's first wife, who was going to testify against the man that exposed himself to her. One week before his trial, inside her detergent box of "Gleen" was planted a bomb that went off in her face. She was alive for 16 minutes after it went off and then died on her backyard patio. She is found by her young daughter at home at the time of the explosion. Her fireman husband has since remarried and he seems like a devoted husband to family, respected in the community, and revered as a hero at the fire station. But the daughter, set to marry is still very much haunted by the memories of her mother's. Marvelous sets recreates the time. Written by
