OTTAWA – A nurse out for an early-morning jog finds a man floating unconscious in the frigid waters of Ottawa’s Rideau Canal.

Nearby, a journalist wakes up with a vicious hangover, an extra, unexplained BlackBerry in the pocket of his wine-stained suit – and plenty of questions.

And that same morning, the prime minister of Canada decides to retire, leaving the leadership of his party and the country up for grabs.

That’s all in the first few pages of Deadline, a new political e-thriller by Postmedia News national affairs columnist Stephen Maher.
