".. there is always that hint of menace that makes you turn the pages"
Eugene Wren is a man who is prone to addictions, whether it be alcohol or cigarettes. Now he has a new addiction which makes the other two seem like passing phases. His new addiction is for sugar free sweets – Chocorange. Never being able to get enough of the things he continues to buy them and with great fear of being found out about his new failing, he hides them about the house so that his fiancée won't know about the thing that possesses his mind at all hours of the day or night.
One day Eugene finds money in the street and pinning a note to a lamppost, asks for the owner to retrieve his find. Soon after, two people enter his life. One is the rightful owner of the money, the other a man trying his luck. Both men will force their way in to Eugene's life as his addiction for the sweets begins to cripple him and possibly destroy the life he wants to lead.
