Covid cuts short the graduation ceremonies for Alex Grant, Henry Atkinson's grandson and almost brings down Carolyn, Henry's BW. He goes to the District Attorney's office to keep busy and gets embroiled in the hunt for a mass murderer. He and his lethal cousin Shelley have to watch out for the cops and the killers who may work for Mr. Rogers (another one.)
When Covid eliminates Alex Grant's college graduation, his grandfather Henry has too much time on his hands. He tries to stay out of trouble while his wife Carolyn convalesces from Covid but he is soon dragged onto the hunt for a mass murderer. His cousin Shelley, a retired hitman, is there to cover his back while Shelley's wife Marian demonstrates how best to hold off policemen and keep Charley busy. Charley is the only witness to the slaughter of his friends and the key to nabbing Mr. Rogers before the banker can leave town. There is plenty of action to keep the cousins busy even when they stop speaking.
