Alice is at home painting her fingernails and ruminating on her parent’s divorce when she receives an oddly desperate-sounding phone call from her father. He instructs her to drop what she’s doing, take his car, and bring two computer disks to him at their favorite ice cream shack. Alice can’t believe her father wants her to take his precious Corvette, and she’s not supposed to drive because she doesn’t have her license yet. But he never gets the chance to explain—and he doesn’t show up to meet her. While Alice is waiting in the car, she hears on the radio that her father’s been murdered. And then the radio announces that someone has already confessed via email: Alice herself.
