(From the publisher):
"I know who did it."
That was the message sent to prosecuting attorney Emma Carlisle on the third anniversary of Chelsea James's death. Everyone believed Chelsea was killed in a hit and run accident, but the anonymously sent note indicated that there was an intent to kill.
Ryan James, a star minor league player, was poised for the major leagues. But after losing his beloved Chelsea, his dreams of baseball fame turned to ashes. Though he suffers from insomnia, he has become a popular "shock Jock" at a Boston radio station and he's raising his six-year-old daughter on his own. His life is somewhat coming back to normal when Emma contacts him about the strange note she was sent. While it seems highly unlikely, both suspect that Chelsea's brother, Babes, who suffers from Asperger's Syndrome, sent the note and may know something about what really happened at the scene of the crime.
A second anonymous note sends everyone into a tailspin. Suddenly Babes goes missing only to call into Ryan's radio show and announce on the air that he killed his sister. Now the police are hunting down Babes while Ryan and Emma are racing against the clock to uncover the truth and at the same time find Babes before he gets hurt.
