In the twelfth Jack Taggart Mystery, RCMP operative Jack Taggart takes on gangs armed with sophisticated weapons who are battling for control in British Columbia and spreading terror through indiscriminate violence. Taggart discovers that guns are being smuggled into Canada from the United States. After a fellow officer is murdered in cold blood, Taggart goes undercover to infiltrate a white supremacist faction and track down the killers. He soon finds himself unarmed and without backup in the fortress of the leader, a self-proclaimed survivalist. All is going well — until Taggart’s cover is blown and he is caught within the compound with nowhere to escape.
