Ryan James' promising baseball career was derailed before it even got startedwhen a hit-and-run driver killed his wife, Chelsea, leaving Ryan alone to care for their beautiful little girl. Now, three years later, he's a popular sports radio host in Boston, still haunted by a tragic crime that was never solved.
But this was no accident
Then, on the anniversary of Chelsea's death, Ryan receives a chilling message from an anonymous tipster: "I know who did it."
