Rebecca Bradley is a 24-year-old constable with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP). She was psychologically damaged by the unsolved murder of her mother when she was eight years old. Driven by her mission to catch the murderer and make him pay for his crime, Rebecca is obsessed with justice and retribution, and is haunted by dreams of revenge.

Hound is a 22-year-old giant of a man, hiding out from life in small-town Conroy, where Rebecca goes on her first detective assignment to solve the cold-case murder of Abigail McBride, Hound’s former best friend. Coming from an abusive father and uncaring family, he is trying to forget his unhappy childhood.

THE SETTING
Conroy is a neglected Canadian town with a population of less than four hundred, isolated from the main tourist destinations of Georgian Bay to the west, Lake Simcoe to the east, and the sparkling lakes of the Canadian Shield to the north. Only the McBride murder has put it on the map. The last decent jobs disappeared twenty-five years ago when Conroy’s sawmill closed. Young people flee town as fast as they can.
