When January Fournier arrives at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary, her brother Grey is barely clinging to life in intensive care after a horrible motorcycle crash. She’s devastated—but things get worse when the police accuse Grey of a string of bike thefts, claims he’s in no condition to dispute.

Jan decides she’s the only person who can uncover the truth and sets out to find the real thief. Soon, however, she finds her efforts blocked by a police officer who’s determined to see Grey convicted. In pursuit of the truth Jan has to pilot her own bike through the twisting switchbacks of Kananaskis County, with both her fate and that of her brother hanging on the edge of disaster.
