In 1972 a young girl is abducted and murdered. Montreal news reporter Ty Davis is drawn into a bizarre sequence of events when the body of the ten-year-old girl and the bodies of her kidnappers are found in a 19th century farmhouse in the Laurentian community of Saint Sauveur. Strange symbols on the floor, ancient words in a journal, and additional discoveries hint of something more than a child abduction gone wrong. Davis and his colleagues find themselves embroiled in a complex web of international conspiracy as their careers and lives are put in jeopardy.
