What if a ruthless vigilante used fear to end homelessness in one of America's most affluent, coveted beach-side cities in a matter of days? In Dire Means this phenomenon occurs in an unforgettable way. The ambitious mission uses a bizarre tactic, terrifying the public by capturing and making examples of individuals who have been cruel to the impoverished. Citizens quickly learn that the only way to feel safe outside their homes is to engage in flagrant displays of public kindness. Businesses join in, desperately flaunting perks for the homeless as a way to avoid being targeted. Mark Denny, a computer technician is lured and then trapped in the vigilante's scheme to maintain the public's fear-fueled generosity and soon learns that he must fight to save his own life.
