The small town of Paradise is devastated when a star high-school baseball player is found dead at the bottom of a bluff. For Jesse, the loss is doubly difficult --- the teen was the nephew of his colleague, Suitcase Simpson, and Jesse had been coaching the young shortstop. As he searches for answers about how the boy died, he is stonewalled at every turn and it seems that someone is determined to keep him from digging further. Jesse suddenly must divide his attention after the shocking murder of former Paradise police chief, Charlie Farrell. Before his death, Farrell had been looking into a series of scam calls that preyed upon the elderly. But how do these “ghost calls” connect to his murder? Jesse and his team must discover the common factor between the two deaths in order to prevent a third.
