In this standard suspense story aimed for a teen audience, Valerie (Maayke Bouten) is a young woman who plays detective as she tries to track down her mother's killer while at the same time trying to avoid being the next victim. When Valerie's mother dies in a hit-and-run "accident," the grieving daughter is in for yet another shock: the woman she thought was her mother, was not at all. Now Valerie is not only hunting for the hit-and-run driver, but also for the identity of her real mother. As she is led from one piece of evidence to the next, she comes closer to finding out the truth in both cases, and her own safety will depend on how soon she reaches the end of her quests.
