Through a series of events he is inexorably and slowly drawn into a world of on line chat rooms and internet dating sites for bored, married people who are seeking NSA sex. His hedonistic actions attract a stalking, psychotic, murderer, and creates havoc in his and other people’s lives.
One night, Dave is 'playing' in an on line chat-room, with a married woman named Melanie, when the police arrive at his home. Patsy, a woman he had sex with in a motel four nights previously has been murdered, and he is the prime suspect. His alibi of meeting his brother seems to discount him, and he thinks he ‘dodged a bullet,’ and that his secret life won’t come out. However, the next night, after Dave leaves Melanie’s home, she is also murdered, and Dave’s only alibi then is his wife, Dianne, who works nights as a nurse.
Dave is released by the police and knows he must tell Dianne of his infidelities. When he arrives home he takes a shower to gather his thoughts before he knows he must break his wife’s heart. But, while he is in the bathroom, his wife is murdered, in the same manner as the previous two victims. Subsequently, Dave is arrested for three murders he did not commit.
Wracked with guilt, despised by some as an adulterer, Dave must fight for his freedom and to clear his name, but the murderer is still stalking him, and anyone else he gets close to.
