An earthquake, a meltdown, a small island country and Canada must pay the price. Politics and international espionage lead Canadian Security agents on a twisting journey of political danger.

Machiavelli's Desert

Machiavelli's Desert is a book of espionage, intrigue and controversy where Canada's sovereignty is at risk because of a CANDU Reactor meltdown in the Pacific island country of Arnivan. Canada's Prime Minister, Nicholas Plato, is offered a solution that could be the country's salvation or its embarrassment.

National Security Agent Mari Volser searches for the reason why a disgruntled senior Canadian scientist's body was found floating in the Ottawa River. In Houston, a brilliant, quirky microbiologist disappears from the university where she leads research on carbon fullerene superconductors. Volser and her partner, Beau Metcalf, hear an ex-con's story that suggests a link between their investigations and Canada's dilemma.

From the Atlantic to the Pacific Machiavelli's Desert takes the reader on a colourful voyage of mystery, intrigue and greed across Canada to Washington, Houston, Grand Cayman Island, the British Virgin Islands, and to the Hawaiian island of Maui where a surprising and unexpected conslusion is revealed. Machiavelli's Desert tests the strength of values existing in international and national politics and asks - when does a profound wrong become a moral right?


Excerpt

"I'm terribly concerned about the fact that the Roman Republic was able to able to last only two hundred years before it became the Roman Empire. I see a strong similiarity between that and the United States. The U.S. was formed as a republic but it rapidly became an empire - we are too close to becoming part of that empire. Sorry, Josh, but your friends scare the hell out of me."
For a moment, all in the room were quiet, save the light tapping of Will Headley's typing on a laptop. The dilemmas, so many, were well stated, the resolutions uncertain. the country's future precarious.
