It was even more shocking that he died on the doorstep of the town's police inspector's home as he was entertaining guests on Christmas Eve. It appeared Daniel Keegan's only failing had been to fall in love with the wrong person, something that sends a chilling message to two of the inspector's guests. Newlyweds Jacob Silver and Sarah Simm are used to criticism, but does Keegan's death mean their own lives may be in danger?
