Detective Bernadette Callahan of the RCMP is trying to link multiple murders in Northern Canada to ones in Alaska.
Her contact in Alaska,Detective Mueller has been given the case, but his instructions are to classify the the case as a murder/suicide. The oil companies want to bury the incident quickly. It is bad for publicity.
Callahan sees the murders differently, as an underlying plot to manipulate world oil. Her challenge is to help Mueller convince his team of detectives to dig deeper.
In order to solve the murders, Callahan must enter the strange world of Wall Street stock brokers, and their willingness to recruit anyone to exercise their greed.
This book surfs the fine line between what is possible in the world of oil manipulation and the realm of science fiction.
The author draws on his many years of working in Canada’s oil industry and numerous travels to Canada and Alaska’s far north.
This book introduces Bernadette Callahan, a woman who grew up on an Native Indian Reserve of mixed blood. Her Irish Catholic father and Native Cree mother who have long been gone from her life give her a different outlook.
She uses her instincts first before reacting to facts. There is always another way to see things, and this she often does to the annoyance of her superior officers.
