fly away on the wings of a thrilling new adventure with
Maggie Keiller and Derek Sloan—
~ AFTER THE LAKE CAUGHT FIRE ~
The pristine shoreline of Georgian Bay north of the resort town of Port Huntington is threatened by voracious developers planning to build a vacation condominium development. Several local municipalities and community organizations are opposed to the plans, and the struggle soon becomes acrimonious.
At the same time, environmental testing reveals that the land proposed for development is a toxic wasteland, a result of chemical dumping by a long-ago munitions manufacturing company. Although the Russian-backed developer is undeterred, the public outcry increases dramatically after several unmarked graves are uncovered at the site of a former Indigenous residential school located on the property.
When a prominent, outspoken community leader is murdered by persons unknown, Maggie Keiller and Derek Sloan are drawn into the ensuing police investigation. That shocking murder is shortly followed by two more killings and the abduction of a young girl, alarming the entire district.
As the scandalous involvement of the provincial government in ensuring approval for the development comes under close scrutiny, several players step forward with plans of their own to enrich themselves. Skulduggery and mayhem abound, and Maggie and Derek, immersed in the midst of these fast-unfolding crises, suddenly find they are under attack from the same malign forces. In order to save themselves and protect the interests of the Port Huntington community, they must use every means at their disposal.
