Description

It’s been a year since retired cop Dan Connor formed an unlikely partnership with ex-criminal Walker, to find Claire, a missing marine biologist. And it's been a year since he fell for her. Now he finally has the chance to enjoy both his retirement and the relationship as he travels up the Pacific Northwest coast of British Columbia to meet her in the remote village of Kyuquot. But when Dan stops for a visit with the lighthouse keepers of Nootka Island, he finds himself pulled into yet another case involving a missing woman. But this time he discovers the mutilated remains of a sacred totem and an unsettlingly large pool of blood.

With the unexpected yet welcome arrival of Walker, the sighting of three known criminals in the area, and the discovery of a young boy's lifeless body, Dan is thrust back into active duty. Once again he must rely on his own logic and Walker's wisdom and detailed knowledge of the area to solve the case while lives hang in the balance.
