Summary

Imagine that this stranger goes upstairs halfway through the dinner party and locks himself in one of your bedrooms and won't come out. Imagine you can't move him for days, weeks, months. If ever. This is what Miles does, in a chi-chi house in the historic borough of Greenwich, in the year 2009-2010.
