Amongst the melee of people, rides and music Holly overhears snippets of a conversation between two men, the words "poison...shooting...dead in the water". Could she have just stumbled on a murder plot? With Nicole's help Holly sets out to investigate and when the girls identify the voices on the recording, they have their first clue. But can they stop the murder in time? As Holly and Nicole try and discover the intended victim before time runs out they begin to realise they might just have stumbled on something even more sinister than they could ever have imagined.
