Depth of Field
Photographer Tom McCall’s only regret about accepting an assignment from the beautiful Anna Waverley to photograph her boat for a potential buyer is that he has double-booked himself and needs to hand the assignment over to his partner, Bobbi.
Little does he know how much of a regret it will become. En route to the assignment, Bobbi is brutally beaten and left for dead.
As his partner lies in a coma, Tom searches for an explanation for the attack. Learning that Anna Waverley doesn’t actually own the boat she was supposedly interest in selling, and in fact that the woman claiming to be Anna Waverley may have been an imposter, Tom believes he knows where to start his investigation.
