High school writing teacher, Don Graham, has been receiving strange notes on yellow stationary. The same kind of notes found on a tree outside of Laura Thayer's house the night she was murdered. Don wants to go to the police but something is holding him back. Pete Monson is a homicide detective for the Raile Police Department. His job is a bore until Laura Thayer, a seventeen-year old girl, is found murdered in her home. With the long hours Pete is putting in at work, his already unstable marriage hangs in the balance. Suspects turn up at Raile High School, all of them students, one of them friends with Pete's own rebellious, teenage daughter. Will Pete be able to save his marriage before his wife has had enough? And will Don Graham find out who's writing these yellow notes before it's too late?
