Thoughts of attending a class reunion evoke a lot of different emotions within us. Sometimes those emotions war against each other. It was no different for Aaron Tucker as his 25th high school reunion approached. He wanted to go, but he didn’t want to go. If he had known the chain of events that would be started by attending, he never would have gone. He really only wanted to “reunite” with his best buddies from high school. They never really fit into any of the cliques or groups. It was just the five of them and they always managed to keep each other laughing. But wouldn’t you know that the one person he really wanted to “see” but not really interact with, was the first person he bumped into at the reunion. Stephanie Jacobs was the teenage sex goddess in high school. He wanted to see if she still looked good or if she had changed over the years. Unfortunately for all the men at the reunion, Stephanie Jacobs (now Gibson) was still a goddess. Plus, she was now married to some big shot in Washington, DC. What a combination! Beauty, money, and a rich/famous/powerful husband! All the men were entranced by her, but Stephanie paid much more attention to Aaron than anyone else. When her cell phone rang and she turned pale, Aaron wanted to know what was wrong. The call was to tell Stephanie that her husband, who had remained in Washington, had been murdered. Later that night she asked Aaron to help her find his killer.
If Aaron had been a private investigator, it would have been an expected request. But Aaron is not a PI. He is a free-lance writer. He did actually solve a murder once before, but that was just dumb luck. When Stephanie arranges for one of the Washington papers to offer to pay him $10,000 for an article about the murder, he decides to investigate the murder and write the article.
