What would you do if you were being stalked and no one took you seriously?

A recently handicapped young married woman, who by her own resourcefulness and the wonders of the Internet, overcomes her struggle against the unwanted sexual advances of a dangerous retiree with a buried criminal past.

Kim and Brad Wolf, a New York childless couple begin life anew in Arizona. Kim, recently diagnosed with a rare disease, adjusts to her early retirement by focusing on their new home, her loving but nervous husband’s new collectible business, the wonders of the Internet. and volunteering at the local police station. Kim befriends Jack Oviatt, the volunteer program supervisor who is attracted to her. The Wolf’s settle in peacefully in the quiet of the desert.

Kim’s tranquility is shattered by a chance meeting with Harry Gellis, a recently widowed retiree in the witness protection program and his relentless sexual pursuit through a series of harassments and veiled threats. Harry is used to getting what he wants and he wants Kim.

Brad’s preoccupation with his new business and the emotional battle he faces adjusting to Kim’s disease and the move places him on overload. To protect her husband, Kim chooses to face Harry alone. Her complaints to the community security force and the local police yield no resolution. With renewed strength and resourcefulness, Kim uses the Internet to uncover Harry’s true identity, her only weapon against the attack she knows he has planned for her.

Kim’s intent is to contact Harry’s cohorts but decides against it once she realizes the consequences. Harry has his own game plan; keep Brad busy out of the house, break in and have his way with Kim. By a twist of fate, the attack takes an unexpected turn. What happened to Harry Gellis?

In an effort to return to normalcy, Kim opts to keep the entire incident and her triumph over fear to herself.

Several years later, Jack Oviatt, the volunteer program supervisor receives new information about a cold case. He suspects Kim has knowledge of Harry Gellis’ death. Can he prove it?
