November 9, 1957: A young, orphaned woman from Germany named Hilla, who moved to the USA after her family was killed in the war from a firebombing, turns up on the mortician's table as an apparent suicide on her 19th birthday, and Sam has to find out if that is really how she died. Sam suspects she was murdered and finds out she was involved with someone local.
Sam: I knew very little about Hilla except that she survived a war when everyone else in her family died. She was either lucky or had a strong will to live. One of these had run out on her, I had to find out which one.
Stephanie: Hillie understood life better than most people. Maybe because she'd seen so much death.
Aggie: You hear more in a beauty shop than a priest in confession.
