Your worst enemy could be as near as your closest friend...Quebec Premier Jean-Denis Desjardins becomes the leader of his province's most extreme separatist organization. Quebec is facing a new crisis with native leaders at Oka, as its premier threatens to secede from Canada. It is against this backdrop that a bomb explodes in the heart of Ottawa, a bomb aimed at Prime Minister Kieran King, that claims the lives of hundreds of the country's most prominent journalists, gathered for a national convention. Newfoundland reporter Derrick Bishop survives the blast, only to come into possession of evidence linking the attack, and the unthinkable slaughter of hundreds of First Nations residents in Quebec, to Desjardins. Pursued by Desjardins' agents, Derrick must fight to survive and get that evidence across the border to the United States, only to discover an even more diabolic plot along the way - a plot that could plunge Canada into the midst of a civil war.
