Jonathan and Kitty Empire were considered the young couple of the neighbourhood, not because they were the youngest, (Jonathan is 26 and Kitty is 25) but they seemed young. They acted naive at every neighbourhood watch meeting. They always tried to be cute whenever they wanted something from people and at every ball or event, they only danced with each other.
They had been married for three years, as far as the other residents knew. They seemed like the perfect couple. But behind closed curtains, Jonathan and Kitty were far from perfect. Mr and Mrs Empire had a shared bad habit of keeping secrets from each other. Kitty drank a glass of whisky every time she came home and never told her husband. Jonathan used to stay late at the office some nights to play card games with a few colleagues. These lies were harmless but they both had secrets they would rather keep quiet. For example, Kitty was having an affair with her school friend, Devon Cain and Jonathan knew about it. That was another bad habit they both shared, neither were good at covering up their lies. This is why Jonathan had hired a Private Investigator, a tall blonde Private Investigator, to spy in his wife. He couldn't understand why Kitty had done this and wanted to find out. Unfortunately for Jonathan, his P.I began following the wrong people, the Hogansteins.
This is how the blonde man ended up in the Hogansteins house, but the confusing talk of money and blackmail, just more unanswered questions . . .
