For years after, soldiers and later tourists swear they have seen a Lady in Black robes wandering the fortress in search of her dead husband, who accidently died by her own hand during the escape attempt. In present times, when a teacher is murdered while taking his history class on a field trip to the old fort, now a national historical monument, witnesses claim to have seen a mysterious person in black near the murder scene. Investigation of the murder falls to the Massachusetts State Police and a veteran detective who is recovering from an opioid addiction and concealing a dark secret which drives him to seek psychological help. The search for the killer leads the detective and his female partner to discover a plot by a Mexican cartel to use the island fortress as a distribution point to flood the American Northeast with counterfeit opioids. Skeptical of ghost stories, the detective, Vince Magliore, nevertheless encounters some inexplicable events while on the island fortress, and in a gun battle with cartel operatives, may have been saved by the intervention of a shadowy apparition.

Murder at Fort Revere -

California homicide detective Vince Magliore returns to his hometown of Hull, Massachusetts for some rest and relaxation. He's on medical leave for wounds sustained in a shootout with a deranged LA cop intent on killing other cops as payback for having been fired. Magliore, hooked on prescription painkillers, is dealing with personal demons as well as physical pain. During the takedown of the rogue cop, he committed an act contrary to his oath of honor as a law enforcement officer. His hopes for a quiet thoughtful recuperation in his sleepy childhood hometown are dashed when he becomes embroiled in a blackmail scheme, child abuse, the murder of two former classmates and an international human trafficking conspiracy which places him in the crosshairs of ruthless cartel thugs. The odyssey of blackmail and murder begins with the discovery of the body of a Roman Catholic priest whose reckless behavior yields many suspects from irate boyfriends and husbands to parents who suspect he may have molested their children. Bodies fall as the killers are discovered and an unexpected individual exacts revenge.
