Bob Peters and his wife introduced their daughter, Barbara, to Dale Hopkins. Hopkins later married their daughter and then killed her. But when Hopkins' team of lawyers are able to get him off, Mr. Peters takes the law into his own hands and attempts to kill Hopkins outside of the courthouse. However, Mr. Peters' plan goes horribly wrong and ends up killing Kelly Joffe, one of Hopkins' lawyers and Annabeth's old friend, and wounds Doug Hellman, another one of Hopkins' lawyers. Now Annabeth must find a way to bring justice to Barbara's death.
