This is my one page synopsis to accompany a cover letter for a query. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
When detective GREGG HUNTER'S daughter is kidnapped, he has no choice but to take on a murder investigation commissioned by the very organisation which took her.
Forced into a real-life version of Clue, the PI must uncover the secrets of the small town of Blackberry Cove to find the body of a young man who had aspired to join the organisation. Digging deeper into the mysteries of the town and its residents, he meets outdoorsman, BERNARD, who jumps at the opportunity to help him.
Bernard has information about Gregg's ruthless employers – the Alliance, a secret organisation of assassins. Gregg believes the talkative outdoorsman is only helping him to get answers about the assassin who killed his wife seven years earlier. When Bernard puts pursuing the Alliance over the rescue of Gregg's daughter, Gregg questions if he can work alongside a man motivated by revenge. But after they find one of the Alliance's brutal training facilities, Gregg discovers that kidnapping young people is how they recruit their members. He no longer trusts the organisation to stick to their word and free his daughter.
After an attempt to rescue her fails, the Alliance shows Gregg they are not to be underestimated by murdering his ex-wife. Forced to think like an assassin, Gregg completes the assignment, uncovering the resident's mysteries and discovering the body. At first Gregg doesn't care that the person who buried the body don't know who committed the crime, as they were merely trying to protect who they thought was the killer and the body is all Gregg needs. But as the Alliance arrive with Gregg's daughter to collect the body, they are all taken captive by the real killer. Hoping to get answers about his wife's assassin, Bernard committed the murder so he could meet the Alliance when they came to investigate. Gregg then pursues Bernard and his hostages of killers, in order to finally get his daughter back.
