In this stand alone thriller, star minor league baseball player, Ryan James, gets the word that his wife, Chelsea, and daughter, Ainsley, have been in an auto accident. When he arrives at the hospital, he learns that Chelsea has died on the operating table.

Three years pass and Ryan's depression and insomnia have led to his release from baseball. He is now a moring radio show host on a sports show. He is raising Ainsley on his own.

Emma Carlyle is a trial attorney in Providence. She had worked on Chelsea's case. On this anniversary of the accident, Emma finds a note on her car, attached to a news story of the accident. Attached to the news article is a note, "I know who did it."

We learn more of Chelesa's younger brother, Babes. He is a childlike person who suffers from Asperger's Syndrom and as a result he has difficulty relating to people.

Complications occur when Babes goes missing. Emma believes that he may be the sourse of the message on her car and a later email.

The characters of Babes, Ryan and Emma are nicely described and interesting. They are sympathetic and the reader wants to find what happens. What information does Babes have? Will Ryan and Emma become attracted to each other? What caused Chelsea's accident?

These questions are answered with a well written plot. ( )

Not great - but a good story line.
"Intent to Kill", by James Grippando, is as interesting, murder mystery thriller. Set in Rhode Island with a baseball background, the plot has twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end. Asperser's syndrome, Russian hit man, MIT, Boston "blue-bloods", minor and major league baseball, all were interwoven in this fun and fast-paced story. ( )

Good thriller. Kept the pages turning, but easy to put down. ( )
