Description

"Detective Esa Khattak heads up Canada's Community Policing Section, which handles minority-sensitive cases across all levels of law enforcement. INSET, Canada's federal intelligence agency, calls him in on a potentially hot button issue. For months, INSET has been investigating a local terrorist cell which is planning an attack on New Year's Day. INSET had an informant, Mohsin Dar inside the cell. Just weeks before the attack, Mohsin was murdered at the group's training camp deep in the woods. INSET wants Khattak to give the appearance of investigating Mohsin's death. They can't risk exposing their operation, or Mohsin's role in it. Khattak used to know Mohsin, and he can't just let this murder slide, so he sends his partner, Detective Rachel Getty, into the small-town mosque which houses the terrorist cell. As Rachel tentatively reaches out into the unfamiliar world of Islam, and begins developing relationships with the people of the mosque and the terrorist cell within it, the potential reasons for Mohsin's murder seem to multiply, from the political and ideological to the intensely personal.
