Beneath Juliette is a gripping tale of crime, obsession and one man's search for the truth. It is a story of personal courage against monumental obstacles and of lost love.
Twenty years ago an obscure policeman in a small rural town dies under mysterious circumstances. Today a television reporter, Brendan Macbean, locally famous for his quirky human interest stories becomes obsessed with rooting out the truth. He runs afoul of a rich and powerful family who will use their ruthless methods to keep their secrets buried.
Macbean must make a pact with a condemned murderer and must convince him to tell all he knows before lethal injection silences him forever.
Battling against subterfuge, intimidation and extreme violence, Macbean uncovers one shocking revelation after another in his relentless quest to bring the truth to light.
