The security of Sam Bell’s gated community is jeopardized when a neighbor dies under bizarre circumstances. Then there is a grotesque discovery in the root cellar of an abandoned abbey located within the community. What changed the quiet streets of the Glenn Abbey Home Owners Association to a place of fear? Could it have something to do with the escalation battle over rule enforcement and civil liberties that began as a small disagreement between Sam and the association and became a tangle of deception? Or could a chilling secret from association board member Patty Lippet’s past explain the change and her hatred of Sam and friends on Carousel Circle? What did anyone know about her reality, and why was she trying to silence them?
As the truth emerges, association rules collide with residents in a freedom versus security dispute. Sam, his wife Alba, and their friends on Carousel Circle decide to fight the association over this issue. Once this decision is made, their lives zigzag from uproarious protest demonstrations to media involvement, hair-raising escapes, murder, and a make or break trial.
Even though Alba knows the odds of defeating the powerful association are against them, Sam’s feisty attorney wife agrees to represent Sam and friends in the pending trial. Meanwhile, Patty Lippet lurks in the boardroom and streets of Glenn Abbey and decisions are made which lead to danger for Sam and his neighbors and ultimately places their lives in the balance.
