Blood Up North

Sister and brother. A loyalty forged in the crucible of their tragic upbringing in the Northwoods town of Backus, Minnesota. Cass, a quiet young woman caring for the grandmother who raised them. Jack, a fugitive carrying a life-changing sum of stolen drug money.

Desperate, trusting only his sister, Jack enlists her help in burying the cash in their grandmother’s back acres. Cass agrees to the scheme, a decision that soon endangers not only her unassuming backwoods existence, but both of their lives.

Jack returns to hiding, and Cass learns of the bounty placed on his head, as the cast of characters in their orbit—some villains, some saviors, some perhaps both—emerges. Their corrupt cop uncle and lawless cousins. Their father, a violent, conniving career criminal whom the siblings blame for their mother’s unsolved murder many years ago. Claiming reformation, he pledges to ensure her and Jack’s safety.

Bowed by the burdens of her love for Jack, haunted by a past that seems poised to repeat itself, Cass realizes that her survival may depend on her own measure of wickedness.
