This is phenomenal read. It moves quickly, with suspense and honest, raw emotion. I couldn't put it down. This story has many elements and layers. It is all at once an adventure, an exposé, and a young woman's coming-of-age story.
The inside story on the still-relevant white supremacist movement is bizarre, fascinating, and reads like fiction, but every word of this story is true. The book moves through the streets of downtown Toronto, as the Heritage Front recruits cynical and disenfranchised young white males, and some of the most notorious Canada-based neo-nazis and their aging supporters meet in a Cabbagetown townhouse to literally sing the praises of Hitler and the Third Reich, and plot to take over a Caribbean island to create a whites-only nation.
Moreover, Race Traitor is more than the story of old nazi-sympathizers, skinheads, and the woman who briefly loved them -- in a bizarre twist, our own government through CSIS created a false-flag white supremacist movement called the Heritage Front. The object was to ferret out neo-nazis in our midst, but the agent heading the operation got out of control. Drunk on power and the adoration of his minions, the Heritage Front became the organ for his own personal agenda. This is the story of the girl who brought him down.
