At age thirty-five, Morris Bliss is clamped in the jaws of New York City inertia.

Enter Stefani, an eighteen-year-old girl in a Catholic school uniform, and Morris’s once static life quickly unravels when Stefani’s father calls on Morris to work for him. Morris’s life becomes further entangled when his best friend, N. J., is recruited by an international cartel that controls global economics and local sex markets, and Morris is called in to save N. J.’s bacon. But most importantly, Morris’s father, a taciturn widower, finally reveals the truth surrounding the strange death of Morris’s mother.

With the agony of his inertia finally broken, Morris Bliss fights to keep his life from careening out of control. He must learn to adapt if he is to survive.
