Dave, the only name we know him by, teaches computer science at a junior college on the east coast. His teaching brings him into the Dark Web and to a supposedly anonymous site offering assassinations for a price. His curiosity leads him to an open window in which someone types his name and thanks him for telling them where he lives. Suddenly realizing he now has an assassin after him, Dave runs. Finding anonymity hard to find, he tosses everything he owns and begins a coast-to-coast journey that leads him to a variety of unexpected and undesired dead ends of which he suspects he may soon be one.
