Syd Sessuous, a newly rich mortgage broker, moved with his wife, Penny, from an apartment to a mini-mansion near a wilderness. He had gone hiking with his friend, Ron. They went missing for four years. Syd returns without Ron, much changed physically, and with radical ideas, like preferring to live in a tree. Suffering from transient global amnesia, he can neither remember much of anything, nor what happened to Ron. Accompanying Syd is a mysterious old woman whom only Ron's wife, alcoholic Diana, can see. Bereft, Diana hires a private investigator/hypnotist to interrogate Syd, with grisly results. Tony, Syd's mortgage business mentee and friend, convinces Syd to work for him. And he does, with disturbing consequences.

Emma thinks she just wants to be left alone to live – or rather die – with her past choices. Enter her sister, ex-lovers, and dead childhood friend, unleashing an interrogation of how we make sense of illness, death, choice and community, early in our scientific, new-agey, well meaning 21st century.
