Nothing and nobody seems to penetrate the criminal ring that plagues the town of Varlee, Ontario. When Varlee's chief of police, frustrated by five years of unsuccessful attempts, resigns, Conrad Miguel Tormez takes over the investigation. Aware of the potential that Pappa-Pappa, a new speech emulation system, offers, Conrad Tormez engineers a daring operation: he'll replace the Woman in Black, a recently deceased member of the criminal ring, with Savina Thompson, an ex-agent and amateur performer. But Operation Woman in Black isn't the only challenge Conrad Tormez has to face. For the last year, he has been searching for Isabel, his teenage, mentally impaired daughter. Then, one day, he finds her-living in a log cabin in the Rocky Mountains, together with a baby and a wolf. A loving father, yet a cunning detective, Conrad Tormez has to balance every minute of the day between parenting and police work. As Operation Woman in Black unfolds, Conrad Tormez realizes that the mastermind of the criminal ring is a formidable opponent-his deadly tentacles can reach anybody, anywhere, anytime.
