When one of the show's starlets is injured in a hit-and-run accident, Morgan crosses paths with the homicide detective Matt Phoenix, who is immediately attracted to her. But their budding relationship becomes complicated when Morgan's boss is murdered and Morgan is revealed as the sole heir to his estate--despite their prickly relationship. Morgan's life is starting to look like one of her scripts. Does Matt suspect her? Now a real-life killer is after her. And her time--like sand through an hourglass--is running out.
