BOOK EXCERPT:

On a chilly autumn night in 1942, a German spy was rowed ashore from a U-boat off the GaspT coast to begin a deadly espionage mission against the Allies. Thanks to an alert hotel-keeper's son, Abwehr agent `Bobbi' was captured and forced by the RCMP to become Canada's first double-agent. For nearly fifty years the full story of the spy case, code-named Watchdog, was suppressed. Now, author Dean Beeby has uncovered nearly five thousand pages of formerly classified government documents, obtained through the Access to Information Act from the RCMP, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, the Department of Justice, the National Archives of Canada, and Naval Intelligence. He has supplemented this treasure trove with research among still heavily censored FBI files, and interviews with surviving participants in the Watchdog story. Although British records of the case remain closed, Beeby also interviewed the MI5 case officer for Watchdog, the late Cyril Mills. The operation was Canada's first major foray into international espionage, predating the Gouzenko defection by three years. Watchdog, as Beeby reveals, was not the Allied success the RCMP has long claimed. Agent `Bobbi' gradually ensnared his captors with a finely spun web of lies, transforming himself into a triple-agent who fed useful information back to Hamburg. Beeby argues that Canadian authorities were woefully unprepared for the subtleties of wartime counter-espionage, and that their mishandling of the case had long-term consequences that affected relations with their intelligence partners throughout the Cold War.

The prophesied child has been found. Many factions will fight to gain control of him. Will the Drakim rise again? Jake Avalon lives a privileged life on his Grandfather's estate. He has everything a 16 year old boy would want, money, freedom and great friends. His life, however, begins to unravel when he encounters a man hiding in a corn field on the estate. The man turns out to be the brother he didn't know he had, Xavier, his protector. Jake is a phenomenon, he is half human and half angel. He is the prophesied child, who would re-establish an ancient order of angel assassins. He bears the mark of The Drakim, destined to become a very powerful man and all hell, heaven and everything in between wants a piece of that power. Some will come to take that power for evil, others as leverage to secure their own precarious position of power. There are those, like his brother and a certain suspected renegade archangel called Gabriel, who will do everything in their power to ensure that Jake has a choice.
