Can love be extorted? An ingenious vigilante launches a bizarre mission to end homelessness in the coveted beach-side city of Santa Monica. Randomly-chosen citizens mysteriously disappear after they are secretly videotaped ignoring or exhibiting cruelty to the homeless. Days later, their chilling fate is broadcast for the world to see. The vigilante's demand is clear: Be kind to the homeless or risk the same horrifying consequences. With law enforcement stymied, Santa Monica becomes a virtual armed encampment. Citizens engage in flagrant displays of public kindness as the only way to feel safe outside their homes. Businesses join in, using storefront window signs to flaunt perks for the homeless and avoid being targeted. Mark Denny, a computer technician, is lured and then trapped in the vigilante's scheme to maintain the public's fear-fueled generosity. Matching technological wits is the only way he can end the city's terror, but it could cost his life. This taut thriller brings you page after page of nail-biting tension laced with moral quandaries.
