A pretty teenager from Brandon, Manitoba, named Erin Chorney steps out for coffee, tells her mom she’ll be back in an hour – and never returns
Almost immediately, the rumours about Erin’s fate begin to fly. Psychics with bizarre theories and suggestions. Shocking accusations and denials. Cryptic diary entries. Disturbing anonymous letters. Search warrants and surveillance.
Has Erin, whose life has already been filled with several struggles, simply run away from those who love her? Or has someone stolen her from them?
Nearly two years later, when all hope seems lost – a last-ditch plan straight out of Hollywood.
The RCMP take aim at the prime suspect in Erin’s disappearance through a unique undercover sting operation, and the result is a wild, four-month ride into a dark criminal underworld filled with cunning mind games, shadowy figures, daring twists and Academy-award winning acting performances.
And an explosive ending that nobody saw coming…
