       Additional Information  
      Jennie McGrady's Labor Day weekend promises relaxation and fun when she visits a fur farm run by family acquaintances. Jennie's anticipation of the trip grows when she learns Scott Chambers, an old friend, has taken a job at the very same farm. But on her first night there, the mink are released from a neighboring farm and Jennie fears the sometimes volatile Scott may have been behind it.

    Scott Chambers' participation in extreme animal rights activities is in the past or so he claims. Jennie wants to believe him, but his arrival to the area just before the mink release seems more than coincidence. And when Bob Sutherland, the affected farmer, turns up missing, suspicion falls on Scott.

    Aleshia Sutherland makes no secret of her involvement with the radical Animal Rights Movement and has been kicked out of her parents home because of it. Does she despise her father's line of work so much that she would hurt him?

    Can Jennie look beyond her personal feelings to find the truth?
