Cat and mouse. Jonathan McQuarry is an auditor in Manhattan, moving from office to office checking their books. While working late, a smooth and well-dressed man named Wyatt Bose chats Jonathan up, offers him a joint, and soon they're pals. When their cell phones are accidentally swapped, Jonathan answers Wyatt's phone to a series of women asking if he's free tonight. Jonathan discovers it's a sex club: busy powerful people meet each other anonymously in hotels. Jonathan falls for one of the club members, whom he knows only as "S," whom he's also seen on a subway. When she goes missing, patterns emerge and Jonathan faces demands involving violence and lots of money.

Milquetoast Jonathan McQuarry does not have and has never had much of a social life. This situation is not helped by his job as a corporate financial auditor, as he does not have what one would consider regular work colleagues, he moving from company to company in his auditing work and only seeing in his work life the same people, who don't really know him, for as long as he is auditing their books. His social life changes when he meets Wyatt Bose, a lawyer at a law firm whose books Jonathan is auditing. The two strike up a friendship. Jonathan secretly discovers that Wyatt is part of a high end sex club, each member who is given a list of telephone numbers of other club members of the opposite sex with who to initiate one-on-one sexual encounters at upscale hotels, no strings or names attached and no conversation about real life. In infiltrating the club using Wyatt's contact list, Jonathan soon meets a club member with who he would like to have a real relationship outside of the club, she who he had a brief encounter with a few weeks earlier and had fallen in love with her at first sight. But in being a member of the club, Jonathan gets unwittingly caught in some criminal activity, namely embezzlement and murder. Jonathan has to stay one step ahead of both the criminal mastermind and the police solely to stay alive. - Huggo
