Written before the Covid Crisis
In 2019, the Canadian Government sent seven scientists to investigate an environmental disaster in the Northwest Territory: all seven vanished. When activist Annie Erickson learns that her sister Katy is one of “The Missing,” Annie journeys into the wilderness to find her. Her investigation leads her to a mysterious region called The Lake of the Woods and to an uninhabited island the locals believe is haunted. Drawn to the area’s strange ecological phenomena, Annie discovers that the neighboring territory is held under strict quarantine by a private U.S. company. As Annie investigates each lead, she is forced into a shady alliance with a rogue scientist and a political informant. Together, they uncover a classified bioweapons program: “The 7th Fire.” As events unfold amid a global pandemic, Annie realizes that her mission has just begun.
