Alan Boltby is one of Toronto’s most successful corporate lawyers—and an insular workaholic. But he remembers his father exhorting him to become all the man he can be. He decides to reconnect with his older brother, James, his only significant family tie. And he asks his former lover, now general counsel at James’s Manhattan hedge fund, to dinner. James asks Alan for help at the hedge fund, where Alan is shocked to find insider trading allegations. Alan turns investigator, linking two unexplained deaths. But when the brothers take refuge at Crook’s Hill Farm, their boyhood home, a horrific, long-buried family crime resurfaces. For ten days, Alan fights between protecting James and standing up for what’s right—while saving himself from the family crime’s noose.
