Wildlife biologist, Peter Kane, would much rather be in the wilderness studying his wolves but he’s committed to his role as a research subject for the Wainwright University’s Olfactory Project.
The extension of the project has left him short of cash so although things haven’t worked out between him and Marie, when the police need his nose for their investigation into her past, he reluctantly agrees.

Absolutely nothing, though, can prepare them for the stark truth.
