- The story is a mystery thriller. The main character, Jim "Handy" Mann, has a home office in a suburban neighborhood and he does do-it-yourself projects for his neighbors. One of those projects pulls him into a life insurance scam that leads to the discovery of the dark side of his closest neighbors. Two women take advantage of him being a "nice guy." The dead blow hammer comes into play several times during the story, once against a friend of his and once to save his life.
