As a detective in the LAPD Threat Management Unit, Arvo Hughes has dealt with every kind of stalker there is - and in 1990s Hollywood, he's not short of work.
But when it comes to TV star Sarah Broughton, who has been receiving unsettling anonymous letters, even Arvo cannot find a pattern in this stalker's behaviour. The letters seemed harmless enough, until the actress discovers a mutilated body in the sand right outside her Malibu home.
Certain that Sarah's stalker must have met her before, Arvo realises his only chance to catch the killer before he gets closer to Sarah is to delve into her past - but nothing is straightforward in this case, and the squeaky-clean star seems to be keeping all memories of a shady history locked away . . .
