A Hutchinson for Murder One Reboot.
Vanessa Hutchinson's sudden reappearance into her ex-husband's life unsettles Hutch and Starsky in more ways than they can anticipate. She shows up just as both men are on the cusp of facing some deep truths about their long-term partnership and where it might be heading.
Vanessa's late night arrival rocks Hutch emotionally and immediately propels Starsky into protective mode, since he is wary and skeptical of her reasons for seeking Hutch's attention. Compounding Vanessa's troubles: a doubly unforgiving Starsky, who--fresh out of a disastrous personal relationship himself--is more hostile toward her than ever before. Suspicious about why she is back, Starsky is unprepared for the real motives behind her attempts to insinuate herself back into Hutch's life.
When Vanessa's desperate bid to involve Starsky personally into her secret and dangerous activities plunges them both into a lethal nightmare, Starsky will be forced to revisit ghosts from a part of his life he thought he'd left behind.
