The story behind the one-hour drama “Haven” is based on the novel “The Colorado Kid” from the renowned author Stephen King :
FBI Special Agent Audrey Parker, played by Emily Rose arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine, on a routine case. She soon finds herself increasingly involved in the return of "The Troubles", a plague of supernatural afflictions that have occurred in the town at least twice before. With an openness to the possibility of the paranormal, she also finds a more personal link in Haven that may lead her to the mother she has never known.
Parker (Emily Rose) begins to realize that her arrival in Haven may have been planned and that her name and even her memories may not be her own. As the series progresses, she learns more about the mysteries of both Haven and her true identity.
She and her partner Nathan Wuornos, played by Lucas Bryant find themselves frequently facing problems caused by both the effects of the Troubles, as well as town folk who take more drastic measures again.
Eric Balfour is playing Duke Crocker, the port town's smuggler, who frequently is involved in the investigations. He is eventually revealed to have the power to stop individual Troubles for good, though at a very heavy price.
