About the Book
Research for Terrorist Cove was started by Lee Heide about two years ago as he foresaw the tragic events of 11 Sep 2001. Not New York's World Trade Centre of course, but he was certain that some form of Islamic attack was about to take place on mainland America. The novel postulates a major Islamic base on northern Vancouver Island where a Master Bomber (an Iraqi chemical engineer named Orrin Hadi) has a laboratory and makes bombs to strike at American installations in Canada. His base is also used for smuggling illegal Asians into Canada and the U.S. and for shipments of cocaine and heroin bound for Chinese Triads across the country.
A small air charter company, located near Vancouver, often flies over northern Vancouver Island with parties of hunters and fishermen. They discover the terrorist base and get into trouble doing so, especially the lovely aircraft captain - Gina Marcello. Eventually the site is revealed to the RCMP who call in a team from JTF-2, Canada's anti-terrorism force.
