Shortly after arriving in Boston, Kate finds out that Corbin’s next door neighbor, Audrey, has been murdered. Kate tries not to let her anxiety over the situation get the best of her, until the police start questioning Kate and other residents of the apartment complex. Kate meets another neighbor, Alan, who tells her that he’s seen Corbin leaving Audrey’s apartment a number of times…if that’s true, then why did Corbin tell her he hardly knew Audrey?

After doing some of her own snooping, she finds some odd things in Corbin’s apartment that make her wonder if he’s more involved in Audrey’s murder than he’s letting on…and what about Alan, the neighbor who has admitted to watching Audrey through his window? As Kate begins to question what really happened, she’ll find she’s in more danger than she realized…
