Crime stories takes us into the murky land of the suburbs where one dirty trick always deserves another. It depicts the lives of smalltime criminals well on their way down the slippery slope. We gradually enter the inevitable game of cat and mouse between cops and criminals. A game that no one ever emerges from unscathed.
St-Canut, Laurentians. At dawn, in a muddy field on the edge of a dairy farm, a car is canted sideways with the doors open... A beast is sniffing sofas provided for a cocktail dinner... Further on, two bodies lie on the frozen ground... A suburbanite and a farmer have been murdered.
Constance Forêt, 37 years old, chief investigator of the Mascouche regional office, is sent to the scene. But this double murder is only the beginning of a murder saga. Constance is divorced from an ex-police officer who has become a dirty cop - who continues to worry her with his shenanigans - and with whom she has had three children. Too busy with work, Constance is lucky enough to live with her sister and confidante Zoé, who takes care of her children and the family motel that their father, an alcoholic and difficult to manage, has neglected for years.
Constance must work with the Major Crimes investigators dispatched from Montreal, Antoine and his superior Fred Bérubé, in charge of leading this complex investigation. She can also count on her loyal and willing partner Jonas as well as the services of a few pregnant police officers confined to less dangerous administrative duties.
