After shunning her overbearing parents’ wealthy lifestyle, waitress and part-time student Rose Strickland is drawn back into their world when she tries to prove the innocence of the town’s crooked police chief. He’s suspected in the murder of Delia Cummings, his secretary and mistress. While she tracks down clues with the aid of her bestie, Rose’s pal, Axton, and his Klingon gang are feuding with their Starfleet rivals. In between interrogating Trekkies and quizzing socialites, she discovers the secrets Delia took to her grave. When Chief Mathers threatens to bring down Rose’s criminally mischievous boyfriend, she makes it her mission to find the real killer before Sullivan finds himself in prison.
