Sheila Kendall, the daughter of a Navy SEAL killed in action, is a talented Juilliard student who dreams of a solo career as a cellist. To earn money for an important upcoming cello competition, she takes a part-time job in a law firm. One of the partners, Julian Emory, immediately takes an inordinate interest in her. He’s good-looking, charming, and an aficionado of classical music. Soon he becomes her mentor, then her lover, and then the trouble begins. He wants to control everything about her from the clothes she wears to the tempo of the music she plays. It’s all too much for Sheila and she tells him it’s over. But it’s not over for Julian. It’s just beginning. On the advice of a NYPD detective, Sheila goes to stay at the isolated country home of her cello teacher, but Julian finds her. He cuts the telephone wires, shuts off the electric, and disables her car. Now she’s trapped in the house. Then a strange transformation takes place in Sheila. She morphs from a sensitive, gentle musician into, well, a warrior. Using the knowledge and techniques she’d picked up from her SEAL father, she methodically begins to turn ordinary household tools, cleaners, food items – even strings from her cello – into lethal weapons and bobby-traps. But will it be enough to stop Julian?
