by Charlie, Donlea involves a young TV journalist’s pursuit of a cold case. In 2001, the high-profile murder of a writer was all over the headlines, until the chief suspect died in the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11 without going to trial. In 2021, new evidence from Ground Zero confirms that the suspect, Victoria Ford, was actually killed but casts doubt on her guilt. TV news host Avery Mason jumps at the chance to exonerate Victoria, find the real killer, and use the scoop to renegotiate her contract. She enlists the help of former FBI agent Walt Jenkins, the original investigator of the case, to help her dig into Victoria’s life. But everyone involved is hiding something, and even in a cold case the secrets don’t stay buried for long.
