Charlie Fairmile’s dad has been accused of bank robbery. Charlie knows he isn’t guilty, but the police are convinced he’s the Stocking Bandit. They have eye witnesses. They even claim to have evidence. His mother says if his father goes to jail, they’ll have to move. So Charlie has to find the real criminal – and fast. With the help of his best friends, Bernadette and Lewis, and his guardian angel, Gideon, Charlie sets out to solve the mystery. But can a blind teenager unravel a crime even the police can’t solve?

Introducing Charlie, a smart, confident, and spunky hero, his tough-as-nails best friends, and his quirky and mysterious guardian angel in a satisfying and fast-paced modern-day mystery.
