outwardly innocent fishing village.
Misery Bay is
a picturesque fishing village on the Eastern shore of Nova
Scotia, a seemingly idyllic location. But the islands and
hidden coves hide something more sinister. Illegal
immigrants and drugs are being smuggled in for the escort
services in Halifax. Special Constable Garrett Barkhouse has
spent twenty years fighting these twin scourges, but now
heâ€™s burned out and planning to retire. However, his boss,
Deputy Commissioner Alton Tuttle, has other plans. He
entices Garrett to return to his old home town and establish
a police presence on the Eastern shore. What he expects will

unexpected murder of four young girls leads him into a thick
web of interconnecting drug pushers, illegal immigrants, and
While he tries to get a handle on
events, Garrett is sucked back into many of the
relationships from his childhood. The cast of colorful
characters includes Roland Cribby, a scallop fisherman and
all around unpleasant character, old man Publicover who has
just married his fifth wife, beautiful reporter Kitty Wells,
and Garrettâ€™s cousin, a giant of a man who is an enforcer
for the Longshoremen on the waterfront in Halifax.

machinations and kidnapped into sex slavery. As a series of
hurricanes push in from the North Atlantic, Garrett and
Lonnie find themselves fighting not only drug lords and CEOs
but also the elements that threaten to topple the oil rig
and kill everyone on board.
