Death opens with an extended intro from the perspective of Joe Hardy as he grieves the loss of his would-be-if-he’d-ever-admitted-his-feelings-but-now-she’s-dead-so-he-can’t paramour.

And given Drew’s penchant for trouble—specifically, causing such for River Heights’ most notorious crooks, including the Syndicate responsible for the murder of Fenton Hardy (Joe and Frank’s father, as detailed in The Big Lie)—he might just be on to something.
