End of Innocence, Part 1 of this first-in-a-series mystery thriller introduces Sgt. Alex Desocarras, an Indigenous RCMP officer stationed in the town of 100 Mile House, in British Columbia’s South Cariboo Region.
A young girl, Carey Bolton, is abducted from her home in Terrace, BC. Within 48 hours, Carey’s missing persons’ page joined many others on police bulletin boards across the province and beyond: 11 year-old Indigenous girl; walks with a limp; last seen getting into a stranger’s car after a soccer game.
Weeks later, when an anonymous caller claimed Carey was seen entering a house in East Vancouver, BC, visits by the Vancouver Police Department and then her family turn up nothing. But family friend, filmmaker Morgan O’Meara is suspicious. Looking for answers, she returns to the house and leaves a note. Retaliation is swift. Two days later, O’Meara disappears without a trace.
The abductions pit Sgt. Desocarras and the VPD MPU against a tightly woven trafficking network that has operated in BC with impunity for years, and ultimately force him to question the innocence of everyone around him.
