Usually Ottawa journalist Stephen Maher concentrates on investigative political reporting, but in his novel Deadline he writes a political thriller about the seamy side of politics in Canada’s capital.
The novel opens with a man floating in the frigid waters of Ottawa’s Rideau Canal, a journalist waking up with a hangover and an extra Blackberry, and the news that Canada’s prime minister has decided to resign.
RCI’s Wojtek Gwiazda talked to Stephen Maher about the novel and the differences between fiction writing and his usual investigative journalism.
