In the process, Martyn ends up accidentally killing Richard. Not knowing what to do about the dead body, Martyn decides to take it along with the book. He drops the body off with his straight-laced brother, Larry, and his slightly off-kilter online-obsessed roommate, Spit, who agree - reluctantly on Larry's part - to dispose of the body for him. Spit believes he has an ingenious way to get rid of Richard without anyone ever finding the body, which goes against Larry's moral sensibilities. Meanwhile, Martyn tries to get the book to the ruthless people who hired him, but runs into car trouble along the way. This delay is enough for those who want the book to come after Martyn. In the process, Martyn meets Theresa, the mechanic working on the car, who may provide him with a clearer perspective of his stalled life. The book, which Theresa too has an interest in, may ultimately be the guiding light to their issues through their collective experience together on this day. Written by Huggo See less
