Machiavelli’s Desert

In his novel, ‘Machiavelli’s Desert’ author Lawrence Uhlin tells a Canadian espionage tale full of domestic and international intrigue. The plot of the story involves the consequences to Canada after a nuclear meltdown at the CANDU nuclear power plant on the Pacific Island of Arnivan. The result of the disaster causes the Prime Minister of Canada to make a secret decision that he believes will protect the country’s sovereignty. His decision sparks events that lead to blackmail, murder, espionage, theft, and political turmoil.

Mari Volser and Beau Metcalfe are Canadian National Security Agents who are given the task of discovering how the death of a Canadian scientist is connected to the disappearance of a scientist in Dallas, Texas. They follow the trail which reveals more than they could ever imagine. In the mean time, the Prime Minister, Nicholas Plato, agrees to secretly purchase the designs for a breakthrough technology using carbon conductivity and nanotechnology to transmit information and energy at close to the speed of light, revolutionizing the world of communications and saving Canada from becoming a third world country as a consequence of the penalties incurred for the nuclear meltdown by the World Court. The story that unravels is a fast paced saga filled with corruption, murder, and secret agendas.

‘Machiavelli’s Desert’ is an entertaining tale of political intrigue that consists of exciting plots with many twists and turns. Readers will find the plan of smuggling information using DNA coding a fascinating element of the plot. They will also enjoy uncovering the mysteries, secrets, and lies, and the surprising revelation of a much larger planned event.

I highly recommend ‘Machiavelli’s Desert’ as an entertaining read that not only provides a unique depiction of Canadian politics, but it is also an exciting tale of international mystery and suspense.
