A man known for his ability to separate fact from fiction when it comes to politics, Postmedia News journalist Stephen Maher celebrated the release of his first novel, Deadline, at the Métropolitain Brasserie on Feb. 20.
“…the thing rolls along merrily, and the jogging nurse and her early morning jump into two feet of icy water in the top lock at the Chateau Laurier to rescue a drowned man immediately enters the canon as one of the best initial chapters of the genre.”
“Stephen Maher, an Ottawa journalist, has done us the favour of constructing a rip-roaring thriller called Deadline set in Ottawa and involving deadly manoeuvres to replace a Conservative prime minister in his final term.”
