Gary, an actor who plays a cop on television, uses too much lighter fluid when he burns his ex-girlfriend's things, then he drinks and drives, uses crack, and crashes his car. He sobers up in jail and is placed under house arrest and the watchful eye of a publicist, the cheery and tough-minded Margaret.

She moves him into the empty house of a writer who's away in Canada on a shoot.

Gary meets Sarah, an attractive and seemingly-willing neighbour. His friendship with Margaret blooms and strange things happen: he finds notes he doesn't remember writing and he hears noises.

Two remaining chapters reveal what's going on.
