Photos never lie.
Still grieving his toddler’s death, Philadelphia P.D. Detective Dan Brennan is assigned to investigate a socialite’s fatal fall down her mansion’s staircase. The victim’s daughter alleges her mother was murdered. Her evidence? The dead in the vintage photographs displayed on the mansion’s walls have told her so. The epileptic young woman claims she can talk to the dead.
Compelled to listen to the reclusive teen’s pleas, Brennan sets out to look into her mother’s death and stumbles upon a disturbing commonality as he reopens a quartet of cold cases. Entangled in the wealthy family’s long history of madness and murder, Brennan faces a choice: label the death an accident and save his career, or commit professional suicide for the chance to hear his daughter’s voice once again.
