When his best friend, and advocate for the homeless, Denman Scott asks him to help stop the demolition of the Lucky Strike--a once majestic hotel in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside that is now home to nearly three hundred of the city's least fortunate residents--Cole Blackwater gets more than he bargained for. Working with Vancouver Sun reporter Nancy Webber and street nurse Juliet Rose, Cole and Denman discover that homeless people in the area have been disappearing without a trace. As they venture into the dark corners of the city's underworld, and into political corruption at City Hall, they find themselves in the middle of a dangerous cabal of city officials, high-ranking cops, condo developers, and crime bosses. Can Cole and his friends unravel the mystery behind the Lucky Strike--before any more of the Eastside's homeless find themselves on the vanishing track?
