In The Finger's Twist, Charles and Elodie are hired to investigate a bombing attempt at the Ontario legislature, purportedly committed by an anarchist group called The Black Bloc. While the city drops into paranoia fueled by the police and the mayor, Charlie and Elodie try to keep the black sheep daughter of a prominent family from a certain prison sentence.
 

The Finger's Twist is more than just a gripping action thriller with an extreme tough-guy hero. It's a story of unlikely lovers defying emotional and physical odds, and a clash of differing social castes, prejudices, and political worlds.
