Quickly Jason becomes embroiled with the changing landscape. Indians tell him to leave the land that they insist is theirs. A religious cult offers to buy the land. However, Jason reaches closure when he finds the skull of his uncle. As someone tries to kill him, Jason and Jackpine News Editor Erica Chamberlain try to find out who did it even while they fall in love.

CANNIBAL LAKE is an intriguing investigative tale starring a delightful hero and a horde of secondary characters that run the human genome string. The story line moves forward at a reasonable clip enabling the audience to see what Jason observes as well as have a feel for this remote Midwest area.
