Closing Time

Overview

A murderer stalks the northern Ontario wilderness.

It’s late summer and a restless Officer Kala Stonechild has taken her foster niece, Dawn, on a canoe trip at Pine Hollow Lodge in the wilderness north of Sault Ste. Marie. But the getaway turns deadly when a teenage girl goes missing on her way home from an evening shift at the lodge’s restaurant.

After the girl’s body is found between the lodge and Searchmont, Stonechild reluctantly agrees to help with the investigation. She’s teamed with Clark Fischer, an officer she worked with in her last posting in northwestern Ontario. As the investigation heats up, Stonechild’s past threatens the close bonds she’s forged back home. Will she return to her life in Kingston or will the rekindling of an old relationship lure her away for good?
