When he steps out on the ledge of a building, threatening to jump unless he's told who his parents are, Father Dowling is called to try and talk him down but unfortunately he jumps and Father Dowling feeling responsible looks into it. And he learns that he may have been murdered, but he still has to find out how, why, and who. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>
