An 11-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

When the story first started didn't think I would like it. As the story matured it gained momentum and pulled me in and the narration was great as well. All around enjoyable story and narration. Highly recommended.

Didnt love the narration but it didn't hinder the story. i loved this story. just enough romance and twist and turns. The main characters didn't have blonde hair and blue eyes and everyone wasn't drop dead beautiful (to an extent). if you like a mystery and a good thriller, i believe you'll like this stroy.

While this story isn't a big thriller. the storyline and the performance/reading is one of the best so far. The storyline of the gang members is nothing short of hilarious. if you enjoy a great story that's fun and funny you have to add this to your collection. A must have.
