Intrigued by the death of the last remaining of the philanthropic Winthrops, Dana Evans, anchorwoman, goes in search of clues, especially when she learns that all the Winthrops have died within one year. As she traces secrets and clues from all over the world, Karen Allen tries to keep up with the changes in characters and switches from narrative to dialogue. The volume of Allen's voice tends to drop when she performs dialogue and hesitates when pronouncing foreign words and acronyms. Editing cuts and blips aside, the chase is on, and Dana becomes a moving target, while Sheldon slowly builds up the plot and tension to its surprising conclusion.
