Frustrated and complacent with his life at thirty, Noah Bailey is now caught up in the recent aftermath of a widespread terrorist attack in New York City. Drawn into chatrooms, he distracts himself from the horrors of the outside world in hopes of finding Mr. Right Now. Encounter after encounter, he finds no resolution within himself.

One night after coming home from work late, he witnesses what he believes to be two lovers entwined, not being able to pull himself from watching their every move. The next morning, he will awaken to an unspeakable reality and unflinching horror…

What was once a quiet existence is now turned upside down, thrown head first into a world of mystery and anonymity. He’s now a potential witness to a murder. Paranoia sets in. Not knowing what is around those familiar corners he thought he knew, there is now someone else watching him…

The reality of his current situation has set in as Noah finds himself seduced by the private investigator assigned to the case. They are drawn to one another in secrecy. But as the affair deepens, so does Noah’s involvement in wanting to solve the murder himself. He must contend with putting his safety in harm’s way as the secrets of this case go deeper bringing him closer to the killer than he ever imagined.
