Davic Woods is aide and right-hand man to Canada’s newly elected Prime Minister Jordan Innis. Davic is a former computer analyst for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, a job he lost but can’t remember how or why.
The answer is in his personnel file, accessible only to the prime minister. But Davic doesn’t work for Jordan simply because she can get him his file; he’s been with her since before she started her campaign. He believes in her policies and her ethics.
A year into Jordan’s administration, a sequence of seemingly random events turn out to be calculated attempts to undermine Jordan’s majority in Parliament. This culminates in a group of men gunning down Davic at a café.
Who are the terrorists and what do they want? Davic will stop at nothing to protect Jordan...and finally answer the question: Why did he lose his job at CSIS?
