Description

A nine-year-old autistic boy is discovered hiding near the body of his murdered classmate. Barely able to communicate on the best of days, the experience of witnessing the murder leaves him unable to explain what he saw or heard. It's up to his mother to reach her traumatized son-both to help him heal and to help the police catch the killer.

Professional reviews

"A child has been murdered, and the only witness won't talk. This is fairly common stuff in murder mysteries, but this witness is a boy locked up by autism. Adam's view of the world around him is interesting, and the plot itself is thought provoking since the reader hears about an assortment of people with communication challenges as the mystery untangles. Julia Fletcher offers a flawless reading that steps back to allow the listener to become absorbed in the story. Unobtrusive and clear, Adam's voice calmly sheds light on the difficulty of moving through a complicated world searching for one's strengths. L.B.F. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
