Synopsis: Following the death of their parents in an automobile accident, 15-year-old Matthew and his younger, deaf sister run away to Los Angeles where he becomes the only suspect in her brutal beating and murder.
From the Inside Flap: Matt's parents were killed in a car accident. He and his little sister Katie, deaf since birth, have come to Los Angeles to escape the authorities who want to put Katie in a home. Hiding in an abandoned theater while Matt looks for work, Katie is brutally murdered. And Matt's nightmare begins.
He is accused of killing his beloved sister, and before he can defend himself, he is thrown into jail.
A few days later he is released -- confused and alone in a strange city where the only people who know him suspect him of murder. His chances for a new life depend on the two policemen who first arrested him: Tony Prado, who sees through the proud, hot-tempered, very scared young man to a boy who needs to be trusted and loved...and Les Ryder, who sees a juvenile delinquent who probably killed his own sister.
Matt must prove that Tony is right. But before he can do that, he has to learn to believe in himself again.
