When an elderly man is carried into the emergency department with severe nosebleeds and excruciating pain, it sets off a chain of events that leaves doctors mystified. The only thing they have in common is Sgt. Nicholas Myra, an investigator with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary. Dr. Gillespie and Sgt. Myra join forces to solve this twisted mystery.
RCMP Corporal Gail McNaughton has just transferred into the Major Crime Unit. As its newest investigator, she is given a stack of missing and murder files dating back to the 1950s. McNaughton sets out to prove that a serial killer had been operating in rural Newfoundland when these crimes were committed.
