    This is a very good book; an instant classic of its genre. Matthew's stories are so gripping and urgent it can be easy to overlook the clarity and concision that move them along. He has succeeded in the difficult task of describing both the crude effectiveness and the vulnerabilities of dissociative mind control -- the struggle to resist hypnosis and amnesia under the influence of drugs and torture -- as well as the legal and political frameworks which allow these sorts of abuses. Not only has he fashioned an incredibly suspenseful cliffhanger and an amazing drama of endurance and transformation - he may even have succeeded in burning down the local operation! The writing is direct and simply effective. He doesn't over-describe his pain or fear or rage, and doesn't demonize his antagonists. Their behaviour and the covert research they exploit are not ascribed to a fanciful evil or bottomless conspiracy; he presents only the context that the story demands, and draws connections to... More > high-profile events only when clearly justified. (E.g., the Parliament Hill shooter's half-closed eyes: a specific symptom of scopolamine) None of Matthew Pauly's tormentors are cartoonish, they are human, all-too-human... The scene where one of the Canadian accomplices seems to attempt to make amends in a cryptic confrontation is a triumph of mixed feelings: a more bitter writer might only have perceived further intimidation, let alone been grateful for the gesture. Even the primary villain is allowed to appear as a fellow victim and, if not a sympathetic figure, then at least a tragic one. The most chilling theme of this book is the extent to which these state actors seem to believe that what they are doing is not merely justified somehow, but downright LEGAL! They don't just threaten him, they gloat about the legislative loophole which would allow them to secretly thwart any lawsuit. Even the attempts on his life require elaborate justification, implying that they are within the bounds of our legal agreements with the U.S. Have we explicitly allowed such things and tasked our elite services to assist in carrying them out?? This testament is valuable for researchers and activists anywhere, but obviously is of especially urgent importance to Canadians. And for the hometown crowd this book provides a hair-raisingly plausible context to the recent rash of motiveless stabbings in Toronto -- you need to read this amazing book! This is happening now!!< Less

    For deeper insights into how the War on Terror really works –and how governments fake terrorist threats to justify repressive anti-terrorist laws and technology-- I highly recommend Matthew Pauly's disturbing (and quirky) memoir THE MURDER OF TIME. An unforgettable account of an unwitting Canadian's forced recruitment into the bizarre world of cross-border black ops -- first as a victim, targeted by a team of rogue intelligence agents operating in his own neighbourhood, and later as a helplessly drugged, programmed assassin forced to kill a stranger on the streets of an American city. Matthew is quintessentially Canadian - polite to a fault, ever conscious of the niceties, constantly trying to play by the rules even when he's face to face with the hair-raising evil of a cross-border "Joint Task Force" that kidnaps him as he's walking home one night on a quiet Toronto street. Tortured to make him scream phony terror threats in Arabic, Matthew (who knows no Arabic) confesses... More > on video to a non-existent plot to blow up Canadian landmarks. Years later, memories flood back of being programmed by a shadowy agency using military mind control technology to manufacture "domestic terror' suspects to control an unsuspecting public. MURDER OF TIME deserves to be a best seller - not just because it's the strangest and most terrifying book to come out in Canada this year -- but most of all because it's true.< Less
