Joe Trumbull is not a man who scares easily. As a juvenile probation officer in Kingston, New York, he s half cop, half social worker to the most high-risk youth in the city. And when he s not pounding the streets, trying to keep his kids out of jail, he s pounding a heavy bag in the gym to stay in shape. But tonight Joe Trumbull is scared to death. It s been two years since his fiancee, Laurel, was brutally murdered. Two years of grief and loneliness. On this hot summer night, he s finally going out on a blind date, his first date since Laurel s death. He s not looking for love, just testing the waters to see if it s possible to live a normal life again. The thought of it is turning his knees to jelly. Marlene Frost is a beautiful woman. She s warm and funny, with a smile to match. After the first awkward minutes, Joe finally starts to think this isn t such a bad idea after all. In fact, maybe this blind date will turn out to be one of the best things that ever happened to him. He couldn t be more wrong. Because somehow, for reasons Joe can barely understand, this one evening will mark the beginning of a new nightmare. A nightmare that will lead him to the faceless man in the shadows...."
