About this title


How well do you know your colleagues? Are they really what they seem? And what would you do if someone suspected them of working for the enemy? David Hoffman may well have asked himself those questions when he sat down to write, An Enemy in View, a spellbinding suspense story that gives lie to Ottawa's image as a sleepy government town.
Charles Haversham, a former journalist and rising mandarin in the Privy Council Office, is asked to investigate a colleague's travel expenses. Although reluctant to spy on his friend, Charles soon becomes intrigued by the man's strangely empty office. And what exactly does Dan Carpenter do? Some cryptic notes, a badly dubbed CD-Rom, and an unexplained trip to Barbados soon have Charles feeling that old investigative tingle from his newspaper days. A rush that years in Ottawa and a bad marriage have almost extinguished. But CSIS and the drug cartel are also on Dan's trail. And with the suspicious death of a Mexican contact-and the murder of Dan-Charles realizes that his days are numbered, too.
As a former federal public servant and professor of political science, David Hoffman draws back the curtains on the often mysterious power games played out in Canada's capital. His attention to detail reveals a bureaucratic world unknown to most, while his skills as a storyteller have the reader wondering "what next?" until the very last page.
Born in St. Catharines, Ontario, and raised in Hamilton, David Hoffman has lived in Toronto, London (England), Glasgow, and Montreal. Today, he lives in semi-retirement from one of Canada's leading policy-research firms in Ottawa's downtown, within easy walk of the locations that play so prominent a part in this, his first book.

About the Author:

An Enemy in View is the first novel from an author who has been doing other types of writing for the better part of his life. A former professor of political science, federal public servant, and, for nearly two decades, partner in the Ottawa office of one of Canada's leading social research firms, David Hoffman turned to novel writing in his semi-retirement. Born in St. Catharines, Ontario, he grew up in Hamilton and, since then, has lived in Toronto, London (England), Glasgow, Montreal, and Ottawa. Readers will find in this suspenseful story evidence of his acquaintance with the Ottawa bureaucracy, his geographic mobility, and his love of fine food. Married with five grown children and step-children, he lives in Ottawa's downtown, within an easy walk of the locations that play so prominent a part in his book.
