'Beeby has succeeded in recreating the characters as well as the atmosphere of wartime Canada. And he unveils in some detail the bungling by Canadian authorities ignorant of intelligence matters...The book is a must read for any spy buff and will be enjoyed by everyone who loves a good story.'
'Other attempts have been made to tell the story of Operation Watchdog, but none can compete with Dean Beeby's compelling reconstruction. ... He tells a dramatic tale, with overtones of John le Carr+.'
'A fascinating tale of espionage activity right on Canadian soil, by U-boat to Canada's shores.'
'Beeby has meticulously researched Watchdog down to the most minute point.'
