When the review is published as being extremely critical of Cubby's new novel, he gets curious and wants to get a glimpse of the mystery man. A brief encounter at a restaurant reveals Waxx to be more than just a bit odd, and soon Cubby and his family are running for their lives from a determined stalker intent on destruction.
