Story intro

Scott and Annie Howard move into their new house in Napa Valley, but its previous owner, Charlie Peck, becomes obsessed with keeping an eye on the couple and ensuring his house remains untouched. Though Scott is annoyed with Charlie, Annie feels sorry for him as he had told them his wife died of cancer two years earlier, and that he will be soon be moving to Florida to live with his daughter. Scott and Annie have their friend Mike and his wife over for dinner. Mike urinates outside and smokes; he senses he is being watched, and drops his cigarette on the ground. When he and his wife leave, he is distraught to find cigarette burns inside his prized car. Charlie continues to show up unannounced, mowing the lawn and berating workers installing a security system. Annie, feeling bad for Charlie, invites him over for Thanksgiving Dinner, along with Mike and his wife. When Mike goes outside for a smoke, Charlie follows and intimidates him. Mike suspects that Charlie left the cigarette burn marks in his car, and later insists that Scott and Annie are being watched. Scott and Annie are unconvinced, so Mike persuades Scott to accompany him to search the woods behind the house, where they are chased by an unknown vehicle. Tensions rise between Scott and Annie due to Scott's coldness to Charlie, and when Annie discovers that Scott met some colleagues and clients at a bar. It is revealed that before marrying Annie, Scott cheated on her with a client at a bar. At the meeting at the bar, one of the clients, Jillian, kisses Scott and he realizes that Annie was right to be worried. He leaves immediately and returns home, but has an argument with Annie and sleeps on the couch. They reconcile after they are both awakened in the middle of the night by a noise, and have sex on the floor, unaware Charlie is watching. Scott runs into a neighbor at a coffee shop, who reveals that Charlie's wife killed herself with Charlie's shotgun, and Scott asks Mike to investigate Charlie. Charlie develops an obsession with Annie and begins visiting the home when he knows Scott is gone. One day, while Scott is jogging, Charlie hits him with his car.
