In the year 2176 the world is a very different place. Canada has been quarantined for over a century after a deadly plague swept the country. Day Daniels is a Mountie, one of the country's high tech police officers who has authority to investigate and convict offenders, subject to a repeal of the conviction by a judge. Now a subversive group is working to tear down the borders that have protected people's health for so many years, and Day must put a stop to it. She meets Lian Firebird, a government operative whose specialty is seeking out dangerous infectious diseases and bioweapons. Together, Day and Lian discover a conspiracy that could destroy everything they hold dear. But can Day trust the one man who may hold the clue to saving Canada from a deadly plague?
This second entry in the 2176 futuristic series, after Susan Grant's The Legend of Banzai Maguire, takes a more serious turn. Day Daniels is one of those "stiff-brimmed Mounties" who lives her life strictly by the rules. But the freewheeling Lian Firebird teaches her that sometimes the law doesn't have all the answers, and that playing by the rules isn't always the right thing to do. The futuristic background is well-imagined; readers are sure to enjoy this fast-paced thriller.
