Shooting the Messenger

Till Death Do Us Part

AMAZON:  USA  UK  Canada  Australia | Free PDF

One of my wife's last requests was that I make one more attempt at telling my story; now our story. I should not have been surprised that my dismissal from the Canadian Public Service still bothered her considering the surroundings in which she died.

At the heart of Shooting the Messenger – Till Death Do Us Part is the story of my discovery of a multi-year, multi-million dollar fraud at the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and my subsequent firing for failing to report the theft of additional millions.

Till Death Do Us Part ends with Lucette's passing on the afternoon of July 5, 2019, away from where she had hoped to die.
