Tom ‘Brooder’ Doran, Deputy Chief of the Police in Beaufort, Quebec, has his hands full when financier Paul Carignan is struck by a stray bullet. Tom investigates but collides with the unwillingness of town leaders to investigate what really happened. Carignan’s teenage sons take on the residents they’re sure are responsible for the shooting--and are then besieged in their house with the men they’ve taken captive. Their mother, Catherine, must decide whether to support her sons in their dangerous campaign for justice—or side with local police. Either way, Beaufort is in for a fiery shakeup.
