Summary
Kate is interrupted by a call to say that her daughter Amelia has been suspended from prep school. As she arrives to take her home she is greeted by sirens wailing and ambulance lights blazing. Her daughter has jumped off the roof. And so begins an investigation which takes her deep into Amelia's private world. But did Amelia jump?
Summary
