Young Ricky has just been murdered. And his cousin, ten-year-old Jody, was right in the living room when it happened. But there's a problem. The witness has cerebral palsy, and he can't talk. Yet he holds the big clue to the attacker's identity.
It's up to a quirky, newly licensed private detective, Priscilla Perle, to solve the crime...with Jody's help and her unusual methods. Especially since this is the second Lindler child to be murdered in the mansion.
