Excess Baggage

Two countries. Three police forces. Four bodies.

It was supposed to be a fun corporate team-building adventure, with travel writer Lee Smith joining her new husband Jack Hughes and some of his top executives chasing clues that take them from the Bay of Fundy, to the French islands of St. Pierre et Miquelon, and across Newfoundland. Lee hopes the trip will offer her an escape from the intense media interest in her father’s appeal against the sentence he received after being convicted of a number of serial killings.

But instead of fun, Lee keeps finding dead bodies. Bodies with first names that match her father’s list of victims. Soon more than the media is focused on Lee. The combined forces of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the French Gendarmerie Nationale, and the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary are keeping a close eye on everyone on the Hughes retreat – especially Lee. Worse, a menacing musclehead keeps showing up wherever Lee is, and there’s a persistent red car following her in her rear-view mirror. And all the while, the body count continues to climb…

“A mystery that has it all... great people, fascinating places and a plot like a pretzel.”
Richard Oleksiak, Story Editor/Writer – Transporter: The Series on HBO
