"I've never fallen in love with my own voice but I've always had an attraction for it." Tom Snyder

Dr. Dan Ross is a well liked physician in Pittsburgh. He's murdered, leaving behind his bewildered, grief stricken wife, Elizabeth.

Commander Richard Christie is the man investigating Dan's murder. He's most sympathetic and understanding. He asks Elizabeth if she can think of anyone who might want to hurt Dan. After thinking for a while, she suggests that it might have something to do with Pocusset Safe House, a home for troubled teens that her husband founded.

Across the street from Elizabeth's home is a man pretending to be stretching for exercise. He's been watching Elizabeth. Then he notices that the neighbors are moving and convinces them to let him rent their home so he can be nearer to Elizabeth.

His name is Frank Razzi and he seems strange and possibly deranged. He's a script writer and a part time teacher who spends much of his time going back and forth to his teaching position.  His background shows a pattern of failure and his object in watching Elizabeth seems creepy.

The action is slow to develop and there isn't much drama. I didn't care for Frank and although Elizabeth was grieving, she seems a bit self centered and naive.

Frank has secrets and knows how killed Elizabeth's husband but to spread this thin plot over an entire book was too long.
