Martin Riley feels as if the life that should have been his is slowly slipping away. Working as a senior executive accountant at Dixie Toilet Supplies and still living with his mother, he finds himself returning to his childhood love of reading crime fiction.
So immersed is Martin in this latest passion that he fails to notice the crimes going on all around him. When a co-worker is brutally murdered in the men's locker room, Martin finally sees his chance to shine. He steps in to help with the investigation, bringing his amateur detecting skills to bear.
As more bodies pile up, each murder more gruesome than the next, Martin realises too late that what he has mistaken for the spotlight is actually the harsh glare of interrogation.
