Overview

Geoffrey Neil's debut novel is set in Santa Monica, California. A vigilante has launched a peculiar mission of terror to cure public apathy toward homelessness.
On each day of November, a new person has gone missing. Police, FBI and seasoned profilers swarm Santa Monica only to be stymied by seemingly perfect abductions. Public panic thins tourist crowds, causes residents to flee and paralyzes commerce so that the city itself begins to starve from neglect. Soon, as mysteriously as they had vanished, the bodies of the missing begin to appear -each adorned with secretly taped footage of their abuse of the homeless. The vigilante's modus operandi becomes clear. Overt kindness to the impoverished provides the only camouflage against the, so far, flawless killings. Within days, the city of Santa Monica is transformed as unprecedented altruism ends homelessness. But how long can the perfect extortion of brotherly love last? Mark Denny, a computer technician, is lured and then trapped in the killer's scheme to maintain the public's fear-fueled generosity. Matching technological wits is the only way Mark can end the city's terror and save his own life.
