A family saga about a Canadian prairies dynasty, the discovery of oil and a small rural town living in the shadow of a serial murderer. More
Paddockwood: a sleepy town along the banks of the Saskatchewan River. It is an unlikely place for a dynasty to be born or a serial killer to lurk. While farmers and their families fight the seasons and their personal battles, an innocent merger takes place that could, with time, have the potential to impact a whole nation. Around and within, this prairie village is haunted by mysterious happenings; death, murder, and dark secrets, and one town resident is in possession of a journal that could be a harbinger for disaster. As the story weaves the banker, the doctor, the farmer and the bootlegger into the warm wool blanket of the small prairie town and lulls you with the experience of being a part of Paddockwood, danger lurks in the shadows.
