122. Intent To Kill by James Grippando

About the book

Ryan James, a minor league baseball star, was poised for the major leagues until the hit-and-run death of his beloved wife, Chelsea. destroyed his dream. Now he’s a popular “shock jock” at a Boston radio station trying to raise his 6-year-old daughter on his own. His life is somewhat coming back to normal when prosecuting attorney Emma Carlisle contacts him about an anonymous note sent to her on this third anniversary of Chelsea’s death, claiming the hit-and-run driver, who’s never been found, intended to kill her. Ryan can’t help wondering whether Chelsea’s brother, Babes, who suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome, sent the note and may know something about what really happened at the scene of the crime.
After a second communication reaches Emma, Babes suddenly goes missing, only to call into Ryan’s radio show and announce—on the air—that he was the one who killed his sister. Now the police are hunting down Babes, unaware that a well-paid hired gun is determined to find him first. And Ryan and Emma are racing against the clock to not only find Babes before he can hurt himself, but to uncover the real killer, who’s made it clear that nothing, not even life, is worth more than his reputation.

I normally love his books. I enjoyed this one but found it a bit slow
