When Al's daughter is beaten and her children are taken, he realizes how out of touch he has been. He is snapped into a new reality when his son-in-law demands payment for the safe return of his grandchildren. He can't believe what has happened and he seems powerless to respond. But when it all goes south, he does respond with the considerable resources he can bring to the table - and Norm.
Just after he returns from his "holiday" in L.A., Al gets a late night phone call. His youngest daughter has been arrested for the murder of her supervisor at the Child Support Agency. Al hires a rapidly rising criminal lawyer from Toronto on the condition that she accepts Norm - the ex-cop who helped him in L.A. - as the investigator for the defence team. It quickly becomes evident that there are some dark perverted forces at work in Riverview. When the supervisor's wife is also killed the investigation takes on a whole new direction.
