Welcome to Goodship, New York. The sleepy, suburban hamlet harbors a terrible secret. A secret that may be at the heart of two mysterious murders. Twenty-five years after the "big game" and the requisite homecoming party, Goodship's secret begins to haunt its otherwise comfortable and carefree residents. When the first murder is reported, the residents are warned, but take no action. When town landmarks are vandalized, residents are shocked. And, when an attempt is made on a local hero's life, the town mobilizes, especially the young, vivacious former soap star (now proprietor of Soup Opera, the favorite local lunch spot) Eliza Gordon and her pal and local radio personality Midge Sumner. When the prime suspect turns up dead, Eliza and Midge dedicate themselves to solving the murders and catching the real perpetrator.
