Opening plot

Starting in a small neighborhood called Southport with only as many neighbors as you could count on one hand. Kevin and his wife Katie live in a so called "cottages". Kevin is a police officer in the community while Katie is a stay at home wife who cooks, cleans, and of course pleasures him whenever he desires. Mistakes and bad decisions leads to an incredible hunt of what used to be his. With a misunderstanding of what he did wrong, that could be what kills him in the long run.
An escape of a loved one from a disasterous life they were living to have freedom and to not beaten and hurt every day of ones life.

Quote

"Kevin paused at the back door to wipe his feet on the mat before heading inside. In the kitchen, he walked around a group of chattering wives and toward the sink. He washed his hands twice, using soap both times. Through the window, he saw Bill set the platter of hot dogs and burgers on the picnic table, near the buns, condimens and bowls of chips."


This passage describes how dissapearing doesn't always settle well when it's unexpected, and in this case, leads to consequences when there was too much evidence left behind. The few clues and small amount of money made it almost as easy as finding a red shoe in the all blue section.
