Although past his mid-thirties, the teenager that lives inside Boniface's head can't believe his luck when he is hired to help one of his rock idols, Danny Featherstone, and his ex-glamor-model wife, Dawn.
Danny and Dawn are the target of an anonymous internet hate campaign that has led to poor ticket sales and lost television work. Broken contractual terms brought to light by the hate campaign have led the management to freeze the band's assets, cutting off the couple's source of income.
And then Dawn disappears.
Boniface searches for Dawn but uncovers small-time crooks looking for money and excitement who think Boniface has something they can extort. Making his search even more complicated is an angry son looking to destroy the parent he believes abandoned him, and embittered, poverty-stricken musicians trying to regain their former fame and get a slice of the income that was only ever theirs in their dreams.
But most worrying, Boniface finds a husband who loves his wife, unconditionally, and who will do anything to protect her.
