The people in Julia’s neighbourhood can never seem to mind their own business. Everyone knows everything about everybody else. But when there is a murder, no one seems to have anything to say.
Julia goes on a quest to find the killer and see them brought to justice, but Leo, the hot, older man that lives in the duplex across from her place seems adamant on keeping something important secret. His silence is a torment.
He’s always gotten under Julia’s skin, and when she demands answers, he gets under her clothing as well.
