Rejected by his wife Alice, day trader and suburban father Jack Smith jumps at the chance to manager a yuppie condominium in Seattle, light-years from the burbs. A mélange of colorful characters welcomes him and fortune smiles with an unanticipated promise of a rebound romance. Suddenly it all comes unraveled with the first in a series of murders, creating fear and suspicion. Bombastic brainstorming sessions, full of innuendo based less on evidence than clashing personalities, follow. Who will be next? Wild speculations become absurd with each new killing.|
Clearly this close-knit group is in someone's crosshairs. Is the perp mad or cunning? Is there something one or all of them did to set him or her off? Pondering this question Jack is tormented with guilt over the first murder. On the edge of sanity he contemplates flight--or would Alice, grown distant in her new life, take him back? What about the safety of his family if some nut has it in for him? What price must these yuppie homeowners pay before the killer is caught? Or...! Will this one simply go away like some serial killers from the past? Not likely!
