Fourteen severed feet. Twenty-two missing blondes. One knife.
This evocative Northwest Noir thriller, set in the misty islands of British Columbia, will keep you on edge until its astonishing conclusion. Based on a real-life, unsolved mystery.
Seattle homicide detective Jack Harris-a depressed alcoholic, prone to violence, was kicked off the force for killing a killer. He retired to the Gulf Islands and a quiet life of fly-fishing, sea kayaking and heavy drinking, to escape his demons. Until he finds the 13th severed human foot to wash ashore since 2007. RCMP claims there are no signs of foul play, but as Jack says, "Two feet is an anomaly, three to four statistically curious, six to ten, you have to think dirty. But thirteen feet? Seriously?"
Blond female runners have been disappearing lately in the lower mainland. RCMP corporal Liz MacDonald-an obsessive, ambitious, rookie detective was kicked off a case for beating a suspect. She fits the victim profile perfectly. Young, good-looking, blond long distance runner. She also happens to be convinced that these disappearances are linked to the severed feet. Liz and Jack team up to catch a sadistic serial killer before he catches them.
