But the unexpected death of founder Silas Tarkington has raised serious doubts about the future of the enterprise, and his daughter, Miranda, must weigh the pros and cons of continuing her father's legacy. Then, at the reading of Silas's will, disturbing questions arise about the tycoon's past and suggestions of a dark, secret life threaten to tear the family apart.
