Mere hours before her wedding, the fiance of real estate
mogul JP Stratton is found strangled in her penthouse. New
Orleans homicide detective Charlotte "Charlie" Le Blanc
views the crime scene, finding a black silk stocking
draped casually beside the body -- a chilling calling card
from the killer.
The dramatic clue leads Charlie to a world of privilege
and wealth, and before long she singles out a suspect
whose identity creates a furor in the city: Cole Stratton,
JP's estranged son. But what she doesn't know is that Cole
has been set up, and while she sets out to prove his guilt
a real killer is on the loose -- a man who now has Charlie
in his sights, a man with yet another black silk stocking.
