As New Orleans continues to rebuild in the wake of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Chanse MacLeod becomes involved in a high-profile case involving a Hollywood golden couple who have committed themselves to helping New Orleans recover. It's up to Chanse to find out who is sending them threatening e-mails. The target of the e-mails is Freddy Bliss, the male half of this Hollywood A-list couple, who had relocated to New Orleans to help with the rebuilding. When his ex-wife ends up murdered, bludgeoned to death with her Emmy statuette, suspicion turns initially to Chanse, who had interviewed her earlier that day and actually handled the murder weapon, and then to Freddy, when Chanse testifies that he spotted someone resembling the actor leaving his ex's home shortly after when the murder likely took place. With his own life now at risk, Chanse has to catch a diabolical killer before the body count escalates.
