Product description

Product Description

Wonderfully realistic dystopian!




Who controls the water controls the masses.

Disillusioned former Yukon mining exploration worker, Landon McGuire, is torn from his self-imposed exile into a Canada he no longer recognizes.Water is a precious commodity, and the environment is contaminated. Individual rights are non-existent and corporate rule is the law—a law enforced by the corporation’s own brutal militia.

Unregulated fracking and irresponsible mining have destroyed the watersheds. A small group of people band together to combat the ruling coalition, but find themselves embroiled in a dangerous game. Landon meets Nora and is drawn into the fray. What begins as a fact-finding mission turns deadly as they get closer to the truth.

Deceit, threats and violent encounters emphasize the reality that economy trumps environment even when lives are at stake.

"This is a truly thought-provoking story that people need to read. I enjoyed the plot twists and the vivid description, the tension and moments of humour."
Erin Potter, Shamrock Editing

"A sensitive topic, spiced up and delivered with insight and originality, as tense as it is thought-provoking."
Matt Kruze, Author of Crime Mysteries

"...the action scenes in particular are viscerally realistic -- I almost felt the various injuries myself!"
Lawrence Purdy

About the Author

Norm Hamilton (1951- ) has lived in Whitehorse, Yukon for 40 years and is now living on Vancouver Island with his wife, Anna, where he is meeting people and experiencing new adventures to write about. He is a photographer and freelance writer. He is currently enjoying Duncan, B.C. Norm has written one non-fiction book, "The Digital Eye." It is a compilation of articles for people wanting to improve their photography skills or for those who want to learn digital photography. His latest project is a novel titled, "From Thine Own Well," a story about a dystopian Canadian society brought about by unrestricted gas fracking and irresponsible mining techniques. It all began with a FIPI agreement in 2012 that left the federal government open to lawsuits - that they lost.
