FAULTLINE 49 is the harrowing account of American reporter David Danson's Gonzo-style trip through US-occupied Canada in search of the principal provocateur in the Canadian-American War: terrorist mastermind Bruce Kalnychuk. As Danson draws closer to the truth about the 2001 World Trade Center Bombing in Edmonton, Alberta, and the criminal war it propagated, his journalistic distance to the story collapses, rendering him not only a brutalized participant, but an enemy of the state. David's findings are as daunting as the personal price he's paid to make them available to the North American public.
Talk of the Town
“This highly original, vivid and bizarre tale of terrorism, civil war, and foreign military intervention in Canada will shock readers and haunt them long after they have put down this book.”
"Unnerving. And, dare I say, exciting."
"It’s dark. It’s heavy. It’s very, very interesting."
—Amy Jo Espetveidt, Calgary is Awesome
"Faultline requires most careful reading, sorting through the Genesis commentary and Danson's reportage. The reader undertakes a voyage of startling discovery: a black metaphor for US actions in Iraq, of course, but also in Afghanistan. The book is meticulously researched and cleverly transposes, to the 49th parallel, events and quotes arising out of the Bush Administration. This has particular resonance for a Canadian who was resident in Washington during that period."
—Michael Kergin, Former Canadian Ambassador to the United States
"David Danson has succeeded in writing an imaginative and somewhat haunting book. It succeeds in describing how in the end, countries revert to self interest."
—Jack Major, CC, QC
