Andrew Durbin returns to Cabot Cove, on parole after serving 20 for a murder he says he did not commit. As a college student 20 years before, he had been hitchhiking on the outskirts of the town when he got a lift from someone driving an expensive two-seater sports car. They were forced off the road by an erratic driver coming in the opposite direction and the driver of the sports car was seriously injured. Durbin went off to find help and when he returned, he found the driver dead and later learns there is $100,000 in bearer bonds missing. He's now returned seeking to find the killer and thief. As for Jessica, she finds herself in the unpleasant situation of having to investigate friends and neighbors.
When a strange man arrives at Jessica's door in Cabot Cove, he brings with him a decade-long grudge and thirst for revenge at having been wrongfully convicted of a murder he did not commit 20 years earlier. Coming up against former students and colleagues from her days as a high school English teacher, Jessica is forced to examine the concept of justice.
Andrew Durbin charms Jessica when picking up the keys of a house in Cabot Cove he just rented; judge Perry Sillman, who just refused to hear Arnie Wakeman's case on account of their close personal ties since childhood, especially on the school team, is startled when sheriff Amos Tupper ushers Durbin into chambers to register under parole terms, being released after 20 years for a violent murder on a prom night he consistently denies having committed while passing in Maine between two anti-Vietnam protests. Bill Hampton, who just fired as car salesman Dan Pulling, also another former teammate, is troubled by clippings and other references to that old killing, where $100,000 was stolen but never found. Durbin insists the real culprits were on the team and in white prom attire. After the farewell party for popular coach Kevin Cauldwell, Bill is killed. Jessica, who knew the boys as their schoolteacher at the time, believes Durbin was falsely convicted, solves the link to expose one or both murderers, swiftly this time...
When a prisoner is released from jail after serving 20 years, he returns to Cabot Cove to prove he was wrongly convicted.
