Jack Connolly gradually infiltrates the private spaces of his wife's life placing gadgets (surveillance equipment) in the bedroom, living room, motor bike, phone, computer, mobile to capture her private conversations and record her emotional responses to the tests he puts her through. His obsession spirals out of control, inexorably leading to the destruction of his relationship and his life.
The novel, triggered by the short story 'Wakefield' by Nathaniel Hawthorne, digs into issues of trust and loss at a disturbing level.
