It is just after Christmas but there seems to be nothing to celebrate. The top story on the news every night is the disappearance of a 13-year-old girl in California. The child's mother pleads on television nearly every day for the safe return of her beloved daughter.
Then, seemingly out of the blue, an eccentric, free spirit of a woman named Katherine "Kit" Clark contacts Jane, requesting immediate assistance. The 68-year-old is dying of cancer and determined to spend her last days tracking down the brutal killer of her 13-year- old granddaughter. The sadist, who tortured, raped and slaughtered the girl nine years ago during a visit with her grandmother, was imprisoned in California for his crime. However, due to a legal technicality and a second trial, he was released from prison almost a year ago. Kit feels certain that her granddaughter's killer is responsible for kidnapping the missing teenager in California. She is bound and determined to locate him as quickly as possible before he takes another innocent life. Kit offers Jane a career-changing opportunity: she has a pretty good idea of where the killer is hiding and she will lead Jane there as long as she can travel alongside her. Jane reluctantly agrees and sets off on a roller coaster ride toward the dark and unknown.
"Redemption" gives Jane Perry the opportunity to finally learn how to live from someone who is dying. Ultimately, "Redemption" is the story of rebirth, liberation, and the forgiveness that must take place in order to heal the wounds of the past.
