John Efford . . . roared down from <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on">Ottawa to <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">St. John's and issued his famous ultimatum to Danny Williams on Paul Martin's latest offer on the Accord: "Take it or leave it." Danny's comeback? "Let me answer Mr. Efford loud and clear. We will leave it, thank you very much." And the war with <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Ottawa rocketed upwards.<_o3a_p>


In 2004, Danny Williams, premier of <_st13a_state _w3a_st="on">Newfoundland and Labrador, hired veteran politico and popular radio talk-show host Bill Rowe to represent his province's interests in <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Ottawa. This memoir covers the eight months Rowe served with Premier Williams during what became widely known as the Atlantic Accord Crisis and a bitter, long-lasting feud between Williams and the top brass on Parliament Hill.
