The first body is found under a trimmed Christmas tree, the second as they ring in New Year 1947, the third goes head long out a window.
Pediatric nurse Katrina Lenart stumbles into a dangerous situation when she finds the murdered body of her neighbor Noel Bauer, but the cries of Noel's infant tug at Katrina's heart. Put in charge of caring for the orphaned baby, she's willing to fight anyone to protect the child, even the detective sworn to find the killer.
Detective Ian Daltry, a widower with a child of his own, is committed to bringing the killer to justice no matter what it takes. What he's not interested in is falling in love. Still, he can't help feeling drawn to the strong willed and independent minded Katrina.
With thugs from out of town lurking about, an unscrupulous officer from another precinct causing trouble, and clues that don't make sense, time is running out -- especially when a second body is found.
