When Annie's loony gypsy mother-in-law told her about Jimmy Qi and his ability to heal and mend by "toning", she simply thought it would make a good story. And, since that what she had come into the city for, she wrote it. Unfortunately, a child who can heal people by using an innate ability with his voice brings a lot of crazies out of the woodwork. Soon, Jimmy has a phony evangelist, the FBI, the local branch of an oriental gang, the Center for Disease control, and a dolphin-lover on his tail. Feeling responsible, Annie steps back into the picture and does her best to keep Jimmy from his would-be kidnappers and brainwashers--no easy feat. The church woman ends up dead, as does one of Jimmy's uncles. Annie's boyfriend, Leo, has a stroke the same day she meets her dead husband's son by another woman. It quickly becomes evident that Annie's own sanity isn't the only thing in peril; as long as she is standing in the way of Jimmy getting stolen, her life is at stake as well.
