Over the years, Mr. Heming has kept them all so that he can observe his neighbors, t just on the street, but behind locked doors. As details of a troubled childhood emerge, Mr. Heming s disturbing hobby begins to form a clear pattern, and the reasons behind it come into focus and when the quiet routine of his village is disrupted by strange occurrences, including a dead body found in the backyard of a client s home, he realizes it may only be a matter of time before his own secrets are found out.
