Charlene Butler, a.k.a. Charlie, is beautiful, independent, and a successful pub owner in downtown Montreal, but prefers not to discuss her past, or the main reason for her success. When she anonymously receives strange letters and the police don’t show an interest in the case, she is convinced by Frank, her best friend, to hire a private investigator to help her solve the mystery. However, PI Simm seems to have a few secrets of his own.
Charlie and Simm join forces when the harassment escalates from letters to explicit threats. Their investigation leads them from the safety of her home, through Montreal’s underworld, to organized crime in Dublin, Ireland. What they discover contradicts Charlie’s most fundamental beliefs in herself and ultimately makes her doubt her own character.



Charlie is a normal young woman who lives a normal life. That is until she starts getting random letters. They are not threatening but they seem off. 
When her best friend/coworker wants her to hire a PI she doesn't really want to but yet it might be the best thing for her to do. Now this Simm the PI will ask her tough questions and get all into her business and she doesn't like it but yet it needs to be done. Especially when things start escalating a bit more than just letters. You can tell that Charlie is a very closed person so seeing Simm trying to get answers from her is not going to be easy.
What Simm and Charlie end up uncovering is something a bit more than anyone would think could probably ever happen, yet it does. 
At times it can be dangerous what they will uncover but Charlie is determined to find out all she can no matter where it takes her.
