“What a story! Part paranoid thriller, part political satire, and all Canada — a sharp, cynical portrait of the sometimes incestuous ties between reporters and political staffers on Parliament Hill, with a corker of a plot. Crooked cops and cover-ups, sex, lies and Blackberries: probably Ottawa was never this exciting, but as we say in the business, it’s too good to check.”

Andrew Coyne, Columnist for the National Post

“One of Ottawa’s best political reporters has turned his hand to novel-writing and the result is a gritty, compelling mystery. The plotline has all the best ingredients of detective fiction, but the scenes, the details and even some of the characters bear some fun resemblance to oh-so-real life here on Parliament Hill.”

Susan Delacourt, Senior political writer for the Toronto Star

“A fun read. Look forward to the movie!”

Keith Boag, CBC’s Los Angeles Bureau

“Few writers can write a real page-turner. Maher’s done it, telling a great story with style and energy.”

Mark Bourrie, award-winning Canadian journalist, best-selling author, historian, and University lecturer

“A fast-paced, well-written adventure and a fun read.”

Kate Malloy, Editor of the Hill Times

“A rip-roaring thriller. Deadline works not because of its setting, but because it’s a page-turner.”

Paul Adams, Author and journalist at iPolitics

“Filled with tales of deception, corruption and sexual intrigue; a fictional portrayal of the sometimes cutthroat world of Ottawa politics.”

Michael Woods, Parliamentary Reporter at Postmedia News
