The year is 1983 and Karyn Oden finds that her dream of living and working in New York City isn't all it was cracked up to be. Trapped in a mind numbing office job and a tiny, roach-infested apartment, her thirtieth birthday is fast approaching, reminding her that she hasn't done or become anything she feels is significant.

Disgusted with her life, her loneliness and the extra few pounds she's carrying, Karyn begins to yearn for adventure like a kid after seeing an action movie. Looking at the world and everyone in it with new eyes, she takes a chance and reaches out to an old, homeless man in central park, sharing her sandwich and his stash of liquor. But when she returns to the park the next day, the old man is gone.

Karyn becomes suspicious when she sees one of the old man's shopping bags lying under the bench where he usually sits. And then she notices something golden, surrounded by drops of blood. Rather than being safe and walking away, Karyn decides to investigate and is drawn into a whirlwind of mystery, romance and serious danger. In stepping toward that golden object, Karyn gets the adventure she so desperately wanted but discovers that adventure comes with unexpected costs as well as surprising gifts.
