Summary, etc.: Peter Lovenheim has lived on the same street in suburban Rochester, New York, most of his life. But it was only after a brutal murder-suicide rocked the community that he was struck by a fact of modern life in this comfortable enclave: No one really knew anyone else. This begins Peter's search to meet and get to know his neighbors. Being inquisitive, he does more than just introduce himself. He asks, ever so politely, if he can sleep over.
