Story intro

While Scott and Annie are surveying a Napa Valley property they are interested in, they notice a deer that is frolicking in the woods near them. Then out of no where, a man with a rifle barges past them and kills it. 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. Though Scott is annoyed, Annie feels sorry for him as he had told them his wife died of cancer and that he will soon be moving to Florida to live with his daughter. Scott and Annie have their friend Mike and his wife over for dinner. Mike goes outside for a smoke and senses he is being watched. Charlie continues to show up unannounced, mowing the lawn and berating workers installing a security system. Mike suspects Charlie and insists that Scott and Annie are being watched. Scott and Annie are unconvinced, so Mike persuades Scott to accompany him behind the house, where they see an unknown vehicle that drives away. Tensions rise between Scott and Annie due to Scott's coldness toward Charlie, and when Annie discovers that Scott met some clients at a bar. It is revealed that before marrying Annie, he had cheated on her with a client at a bar. At the bar, one of the clients kisses Scott and he realizes that Annie was right to be worried. He returns home immediately, but has an argument with Annie. They reconcile after they both wake in the middle of the night from a noise, and have sex on the floor, unaware Charlie is watching. A neighbor reveals to Scott that Charlie's wife killed herself with Charlie's shotguns, and Scott asks Mike to investigate him. Charlie develops an obsession with Annie and begins visiting the home when Scott is gone. One day, while Scott is jogging, Charlie hits him with his truck.
