Henry Pierce has a whole new life: a new apartment, a new telephone, a new telephone number. But the first time he checks his messages, he finds a message for the woman who had the number before him, and it seems that Lilly is in some serious trouble. Pierce is inexorably drawn into Lilly's world of escort services, web sites, sex, and secret identities. Now, he'll abandon his orderly life in a frantic race to save the life of a woman he's never met. But every step into Lilly's past takes Pierce deeper into a web of inescapable intricacy, which leads him toward a decision that could cost him everything he owns -- and everything he holds dear.
