Thaddeus is a famous writer of detective novels and master of deduction. He's also a proper English gentleman save for his smugness. On his way home, a man tries to full Thaddeus but he sees through the man's ruse. Thaddeus arrives at his big secluded house in the woods to mark the anniversary of his young wife's death. There he's greeted by his talking pet parrot, whom Thaddeus thought to quote Shakespeare's Othello so that he can have someone to regularly spar with when it comes to quoting Shakespeare's plays. However, Thaddeus soon realizes that someone's been in his house. As night falls, his house is surrounded by a unit of highly trained uniformed mercenaries led by mysterious, vengeful Griffin who seems to have a history with Thaddeus. A deadly game of cat and mouse begins. Why are these men so determined to kill Thaddeus and is there another side to him that no one knows about?
