When an unidentified woman is drowned in the Ottawa River almost within sight of Parliament Hill, she has in her possession a train ticket from Halifax and a Medal for Bravery awarded during a 1993 peacekeeping mission in Yugoslavia. As Green digs deeper into the military past, he finds himself sucked not only into the murky past of a peacekeeping unit but into the high-stakes present of a federal election race. What dark crime was committed in Yugoslavia more than a decade ago? Was someone still killing to keep it secret? And does the diary of a dead soldier hold the key?



"the most masterful and compelling tale yet in the series."

Ottawa Citizen


"the best yet. Solid plot and good characters." 

The Globe and Mail


"Fradkin weaves a complex problem into a novel that works on two levels; as a mystery and as a spotlight on a serious Canadian social problem."

Hamilton Spectator
