The quick of it...or, maybe not so quick of it since there was a LOT happening in Day Shift is that Manfred's client died during a reading and he's been accused by her son of stealing from her which has brought all kinds of attention to Midnight. Attention NONE of the residents are all that thrilled about since they all have secrets and people they're hiding from. On top of that a young boy has been left in the town's care who has some strange things happening to him and a corporation has restored the local hotel and moved in elderly residents--which brings about all kinds of questions and suspicions. There's just a lot happening in this little town that's got everyone feeling very nervous.
