Royce Monroe is a 41 year old multi-millionaire but he is loser. Divorced and fired from his job and staying with his mother who constantly nags him about getting a life and living life like there is no tomorrow, his only hobby is playing at being a novelist and his next favourite hobby is to spy at neighbours using his spy-glass. However, things change when a new neighbour, Rose Swift arrives next door bandaged from head to foot and looking like she has no friends. Rose catches him playing peeping tom on her. She calls him over. He offers to be her real friend for six months, if she agrees not to turn him over to the police. She agrees and sends him to a small town called Woodhall to await the delivery of a package on her behalf and to bring it back to her as soon as it arrives. Her only instructions to him are, besides not opening the package, for him to blend in with the folks of Woodhall for the six months, which means living poor and working menial jobs whilst staying in a poor part of town. At Woodhall he finds love and that there are deadly and weird forces after the package; forces which will do everything in their power to get it, including murder.
