    Le père Saint-Max meurt salement dans la cuisine de son
    appartement de la ZUP de Bayonne. C'est un séisme personnel
    pour le commandant Jes Cortes qui découvre le cadavre encore
    tiède de Bertrand, le père qui a remplacé le sien. Le retour de
    Victor, le frère choisi et de Christian Saint-Max, l'aîné devenu un
    soldat inquiétant, lui fait craindre le pire.
    Si les circonstances lui donnent raison, la magie des retrouvailles
    opère entre ces natifs des pays de l'Adour, ni basques, ni béarnais,
    ni landais, ni espagnols, qui portent génétiquement la joie de
    vivre, l'odeur des embruns, la fraternité parfumée au jambon et au
    pinard, brefs entre ceux que dans ce coin, on nomme les
    'charnègues'.
    Les frangins Saint-Max et Cortes foncent dans le tas. En trois
    jours surréalistes de baston et d'errements diététiques, au fil de
    rencontres perchées ou attachantes et en traversant mille deux
    cents ans d'histoire, ils vont disséquer les mobiles des assassins et
    remonter jusqu'à leurs commanditaires.

    Quand Jes Cortes, flic épicurien et surfeur, s'intéresse à une guerre entre dealers dans le sud de l'Espagne, il découvre une affaire dangereuse dans laquelle il va jouer sa vie, celles de ses proches et ses vacances qu'il attend avec impatience. Maintenant qu'il dirige une cellule en charge de l'analyse des données informatiques privées, il doit composer avec les humeurs de son équipe et celles de sa hiérarchie qui fluctuent au rythme des contradictions du pouvoir alors que des systèmes sensibles sont piratés et que des ministres sont enlevés.
    Si la capitale lui permet de satisfaire son gout pour la chasse et lui offre son lot de rencontres improbables, il sait compter sur ses talents de passeur de frontières, sur son amour pour Germaine et sa lucidité pour démasquer les coupables, garder une chance de partir en vacances, sauvegarder la paix civile sans céder à la violence qui se déchaine autour de lui.

  • Nobody really knows who these men are- men in black dropped off by a helicopter on the outskirts of a small Afghan village; wading through swamps in Croatia, intent on killing a war criminal; who ensure the protection of a Canadian General in Rwanda; who subdue hostage takers in Peru; and who prove, on-site, the Serbian disarmament lies told by President Milosevic.

    DENIS MORISSET was part of the initial sixteen-member Joint Task Force 2 (JTF 2) unit from 1993-2001. His extensive and rigorous training and hardships will make more than one reader realize that his being alive today is nothing short of a miracle. Seven members of his unit have not lived to tell the tale.

    Canada, for good reason, will never render justice to these anonymous combatants whose only medals of bravery are the numerous scars still visible on their bullet-proof vests.

    Unlike the British SAS and the United States' Delta Force, this special Canadian intervention unit was, according to David Rudd of the Canadian Institute of Strategic Studies, trained "to infiltrate into dangerous areas behind enemy lines, look for key targets and take them out. They don't go out to arrest people. They don't go out there to hand out food parcels. They go out to kill targets."

  • Norah Shariff's autobiography is likely to cause some turmoil as she takes the reader into a harsh world created by her immediate family; a world filled with obstacles preventing her from gaining precious freedom. Norah is brought up in a living nightmare, created by her father's abuse and violence, her grandparents' strict religious precepts, and an oppressive religious system. Although a victim herself, Norah is unyieldingly supportive to the point of being overprotective of her mother whose own hell on earth is filled with daily physical and psychological abuse. Over time, Norah realizes her life is slipping away and her strength of character and audacious nature are the two key elements which will eventually free her from the horrific shackles weighing her down.

  • There is nothing peaceful about Samia Shariff's account. Life has not been easy for this Algerian woman, who was born in France. The third child in a Muslim family whose father is a prosperous and respected businessman, Samia was not welcome in a clan where the birth of a daughter was considered a punishment from Allah!

    A powerful, at times almost unbearable narrative, Veil of Fear draws us into a world of men who justify most of their actions towards women by means of an abusive interpretation of the Koran and its teaching. Thus, from the time of her birth, Samia lives in fear. In fear of her mother, of her father, of the husband she was forced to marry at the age of 16, of the fundamentalists who constantly threaten her, of the obstetricians who want to put her to sleep, of what might happen to her children, of fleeing towards the unknown, of choosing freedom over assured wealth and, above all, of making her daughters live through the same torments she has experienced. Humiliated, beaten, raped, harassed, she had the intelligence and courage to break out of the infernal circle in which a woman depends on the totalitarian power of a man, from generation to generation. Thus, in November 2001, using false passports for herself and her five children, she crossed the Atlantic Ocean and took refuge in Canada, where she was finally able to start a real life as a mother and woman.

    In a style that is both simple and effective, Samia recounts her life, her trials and, above all, her victories. For several decades she was the instrument of a completely incredible belief system that granted her no rights whatsoever, not even the right to love or even live in peace. In this respect, she is now the spokeswoman for millions of other women who have stories that are similar and possibly even worse, to tell us. In her own words, Samia says, "I lost everything I had in order to obtain what I never had: peace and love."
