After the owner of Osome Detectives tells Chris he wants him to spend a year training as an assistant to his friend and fellow detective agency owner, Renee MacDonald, Chris accepts, hoping that his eager attitude will eventually help him snag a position as an Osome agent. But when Chris arrives in the now-independent country of Quebec to help Renee investigate the suspicious suicide of a monastery's abbot, he soon realizes that some friends hide dangerous secrets.
