Jay Forman was once a relatively sane television producer. Since walking away from the cameras she’s been crazy busy adding mother and mystery author to her list of credits. Her focus is now locked on sending Canadian travel writer Lee Smith and Jack Hughes (Lee’s best friend with many benefits, not least of which is that he’s a billionaire philanthropist) to wherever bodies are found.

Two countries. Three police forces. Four bodies.

Travel writer Lee Smith joins her brand new husband Jack Hughes and some of his top executives for what Jack claims will be a fun corporate team building adventure; chasing geocaching clues that take them from the Bay of Fundy, to the French islands of St. Pierre et Miquelon, and across Newfoundland.

Lee hopes the trip will offer her an escape from the intense media interest in her father’s appeal of his six murder convictions.

Instead of fun and escape, Lee finds dead bodies. Bodies with first names that match her father’s list of victims. Soon more than the media is focused on Lee. The combined forces of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the French Gendarmerie Nationale, and the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary are keeping a close eye on everyone on the Hughes retreat – especially Lee.

A menacing muscle-bound man keeps showing up wherever Lee is. A red car repeatedly appears in her rear-view mirror. And all the while, the body count continues to climb.
