The Puppeteer


Michael Miller is a computer science professor and a loving father whose life has taken a few bad turns. His wife of ten years, a beautiful, hard-driven corporate executive, has divorced him, and Michael is left to raise their seven year-old son—a quirky, yet lovable little boy who has a near-obsession with spiders.

As Michael struggles with his life, Salim Haddad glides to the zenith of his career. Haddad is “America's Newsman” —a media icon, he represents everything that his television viewers admire—honesty, virtue, and professionalism. But Salim Haddad has dark secrets, and it is those secrets that lead to a horrifying incident that puts the professor and the media star on a collision path.
