When private detective Carl Faubert took the case, it seemed like his simplest job in weeks. Drive north from Montreal to a small village and find out who has been vandalizing his wealthy client’s hunting manor. No sweat. But finding the area seemingly empty, Carl soon discovers that the case is much more involved than what he signed on for.
