Nick Hawthorne's attempted suicide leaves him badly injured and in hospital. He remains the police's number one suspect in the case. Nicholas Hawthorne continues to conduct his own investigation assisted by his new friend Annabel Lynes. When Nicholas finds documents in Julius' office indicating that his now dead wife was going to sell her part of the business, Annabel is convinced that Julius is behind the murder. She has her own interests in the case however. Although Julius Sorensen learns the identity of his wife's killer, he is blackmailed into keeping quiet. Written by garykmcd
