Creighton Mine, where the innocent hide in the shadows and a killer walks free.

It's 1951 in a small northern Canadian mining town. Nine-year-old Rose Boyle is convinced this is the summer she'll stop being invisible. The town she lives in, Creighton Mine is abuzz because her older sister is returning from Los Angeles and Rose expects some of her siblings glamour to rub off on her. Then excitement turns to tragedy when the first murder in living memory casts a shadow over the town.

Detective Victor Lapointe expects to solve the small-town crime he's been assigned to with little effort, but it isn't long before he is faced with a murder that has no suspects or known motive. To add to his frustration something about the victim stirs up memories he'd rather keep buried.

For Detective Lapointe the killing becomes a chance to redeem himself for past failures.

For Rose, the murder unveils a family secret she was never meant to learn. One that has her questioning who she is, where she belongs and if she were the next victim...would anyone even care?
