Inspired by True Events
In 1927, a schoolteacher, Nicholas Peddle, was found dead at the foot of Lover’s Leap, Harbour Grace, with a superficial stab wound to his neck. Just metres away from Peddle, another body, likely an assailant, was also discovered.
The double murder of Nicholas Peddle and his attacker is the only cold case of Sergeant Frank Fallon's long career with the Newfoundland Constabulary. The slain schoolteacher was a man of secrets, and the list of suspects in the investigation continued to grow until—suddenly—the trail went cold.
Fifty years later, the case remains unsolved. And now, a phone call reveals that new evidence has come to light.
The discovery causes retired policeman Frank Fallon to relive four days in August 1927, when he enlisted the help of his estranged partner, Christine Sullivan, an investigative reporter with the Harbour Grace Standard. Together they sought the elusive killer of both men . . . a search that left them with more questions than answers.
