The emotional impact of a murder reverberates long after it is committed. "The Shadows of Death" explores homicide from the point of view of those who did not commit the crimes, but nonetheless feel as though they could have prevented them from taking place. Grief-stricken loved ones are haunted by guilt as they bemoan the actions they did take or failed to take. For them, they must either cave under the stress of survivor guilt or redeem themselves by coming to grips with their own involvement -- real or imagined.
