A member of a female rock band who knows Mike, goes to him and asks him to hold something for her. Later while rehearsing, she is killed by electrocution. Initially it's believed to be an accident until the equipment is checked and they realize that it's been rigged. Mike learns that there was a lot of tension between her and the other band members. The tape she gave Mike was full of new songs she was creating for the band. He finds out that some other people had grudges against her and tries to identify the person who hated her enough to kill her. Written by
