David Annandale was born in Winnipeg, grew up there, and keeps returning to it. At the age of 16 months, he contracted laryngitis from tear gas in the May '68 Paris riots, giving him early insight into the socio-political upheavals of our world. He still loves Paris and has lived there, as well as in Charlottetown and Edmonton, where he did his PhD on horror fiction and film.
About The Valedictorians:
Revenge should be easy. A multinational corporation kills your family. You raze it to the ground. When it rises again, you blast it to pieces.
But Blaylock made a mistake: she showed mercy. Now, deputy CIA director Joe Chapel has gathered an army of graduates from the School of the Americas to shape the United States into his own fanatical vision. And he will stop at nothing to succeed.
However, Blaylock has more to worry about than just Chapel. Her lover Michael Flanagan, once a touchstone of humanity, now craves destruction almost as much as she does. And her mercenary allies are as stable as rabid dogs. Like it or not, they’ll be needed as Blaylock and Chapel charge Capitol Hill for the most epic showdown the US has ever seen.
In this third episode of the Jen Blaylock series, Canada’s most fearsome rogue soldier finishes the job she started.
This time she won’t make the same mistake.
