Canadian police chief Reid Bennett is back with his faithful dog Sam by his side. This time, the case takes them across the border to Chambers, Vermont, where an old buddy needs Reid's help. Doug Ford, a black policeman in the all-white town, has been charged with murdering the attractive bookkeeper of a local ski resort. Only Reid believes Doug's story that he and the woman were working together to investigate an entrenched money laundering conspiracy. But as new bodies pile up and the mafia rears its ugly head, things start to fall in line with Doug's story. Can Reid untangle the mystery before more blood gets shed? He will have to act fast-an unseen hand seems willing to stop at nothing to keep its secrets safe.
