Ex-cop turned chief of security Ethan Truman has a very bad feeling about the series of twisted little " gifts"being left at his employer's mansion. After leaving the LAPD, Ethan took a job overseeing security for Hollywood icon Channing Manheim who has been dubbed " The Face"of the new millennium and is a hugely successful star. Although Manheim is not currently in residence at the well-guarded estate, his 10-year-old son Aelfric, or " Fric,"is.
Following up on a lead to the identity
The day gets weirder as Ethan learns that his childhood friend Dunny Whistler finally has died in the hospital. Dunny chose a life of crime and eventually ended up in a coma. Now, shortly after his " death,"Dunny's body disappears from the morgue.
Meanwhile, something or someone is stalking both Channing and Fric Manheim. If Ethan is ever going to figure out exactly what's going on, he's going to have put aside all of his preconceived notions of life, death and things in between.
