Abandoned as a baby in a bus station locker, shuttled from one abusive foster home and detention center to another, Bobbie Gotteson grew up angry, hurting, damaged. His hunger to succeed as a musician brought him across the country to Hollywood, but along with it came his seething rage, his paranoid delusions, and his capacity for acts of shocking violence. The novella "Love, careless love" examines the impact of Gotteson's killing spree on a woman who survived it, seen through the eyes of a troubled young man hired by a detective to surveil her.
