Scribe Mort Rainey has penned several disturbing novels in his life, but nothing prepared him for discovering his wife's unfaithfulness. After suffering a mental breakdown, he retreats to his sprawling lakeside cottage to work through his writer's block and move on with his life. However, his plan is thwarted by a strange man calling himself Shooter, who accuses Mort of plagiarism. The two have several menacing encounters. In the end, Mort discovers that Shooter is far closer to him than he ever could have realized. His wife is dead, charges are pending and no one can find any proof that Shooter ever existed. Mort spends a lot of time looking out the small window in his study, which overlooks the garden where his wife's body is interred.
