Summer 1936, Wilkes County, North Carolina during the great depression. The Flagg family resides in the middle of the Appalachia – one of the hardest hit areas in the country. As the depression drags on the Flagg family watch their molasses business decimated. Jedediah, the family patriarch and his sons Morgan and Ezra struggle to produce a few meager gallons a week. That is until their sister Ava arrives home and takes control of the family business and starts running moonshine. Ava bails out ex-con Bobby Barlow and tells him he is working for the Flagg family now. With threats mounting from rival clans and the local cops breathing down Bobby’s neck, he and Ava devise a plan to play them all, one against the other. They don’t necessarily do it by legal means but that doesn’t bother them. To live outside the law, you must be honest.
After a dangerous incident, Sergeant Roxanne Calloway left the RCMP’s Major Crimes Unit and is now working as the Team Commander of the Fiskar Bay detachment. Roxanne is adjusting to her new job when the body of retired Sergeant Bill Gilchrist, her predecessor, is discovered in a ditch at the side of the road.
Spring in Fiskar Bay often means flooding, as the normally peaceful stream–home to ducks and teals and the occasional blue heron during the warmer months–fills to the top of its banks with fast-moving, murky brown water, sweeping chunks of ice and broken tree branches along with it. The locals from the close-knit community show up in droves to help sandbag and Roxanne organizes the local RCMP to help with the effort.
Then another RCMP officer is found dead, and tensions begin to rise as quickly as the water levels. Roxanne moved to Fiskar Bay to keep herself out of harm’s way, but with a cop killer on the loose, she isn’t sure who she can trust. Can Roxanne find the killer before it’s too late?

A murder case well known in its day, it featured a wealthy landowner determined to destroy his impoverished neighbour. It’s a tale of treachery, gossip, drunkenness, arson and the merciless deaths of two not-so-innocent victims.

Sebastian Synard is back. It’s the off-season, and the Newfoundland tour guide introduced in One for the Rock has crossed the island with his spirited teenage son for a weekend exploring the wonders of Gros Morne National Park.

Life as a tour guide had its twists and turns, but now Sebastian—with his offhand, Scotch-enriched nature—is crossing a more dangerous landscape, on a path that will leave him face-to-face with a killer.
