about this item

"Misery Bay" is more than just a fitting name for this 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 he'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 hometown and establish a police presence on the Eastern Shore. Garrett quickly discovers that what he had anticipated to be light duty is anything but. The unexpected murder of four young girls leads him into a thick web of interconnected drug pushing, illegal immigration, and prostitution. 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, the beautiful reporter Kitty Wells, and Garrett's cousin, Lonnie, a giant of a man who is an enforcer for the longshoremen on the waterfront in Halifax. An offshore oil rig, conveniently rooted outside of Canadian territorial waters, becomes the focus of the investigation. Global Resources CEO Anthony DeMaio has developed a nice sideline to the oil business. When Kitty Wells--the beautiful reporter--tries to investigate, she is swept up by the machinations and gets 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"--
