Investigative journalist Paige Munroe still has nightmares about her partner’s death in Syria. Seeking a distraction, she secures a safe assignment: writing and photographing a book about a hot new wine region in British Columbia.

Elaborate preparations are underway for a state visit by young Queen Elizabeth II. But when a brazen art robbery leads to an RCMP officer being shot just days before her arrival, concerns for the Queen’s safety arise.

In the end Riley must choose between duty and loyalty, knowing either path will end in betrayal.
