Sam Arbichaut had been minding his own business when he was approached by a police officer who needed his help as a private investigator. The officer asserts that her teenage cousin had come to him with a case that seems incredulous.

But he cannot take her for granted given that if she is telling the truth about a dozen girls need to be rescued.

Luckily there is former police detective Sam Arbichaut who now works as a PI and has a reputation for helping people in distress.

When some woman comes to him for help as she fears she is being stalked, he cannot help but take on the case. However the more Sam closes in on the intricate web and the web of lies begins to unravel, he will have to call upon all his smarts and courage.
But then his life begins to come apart at the seams and if he cannot stop a potentially deadly assailant and get to the truth, his new life in Portland may just come crumbling down.
