Tess Redpath has been working for The Argus nearly all her working life. But within minutes of meeting the paper's new proprietor, she finds herself without a job. Life without deadlines feels empty and miserable, and gets worse when Tess's married lover, a high-ranking officer undergoing positive vetting for a NATO job, decides it's all over. Trying to drag herself back from despair, she decides to work freelance on the stories she has already started. Then her flat is ransacked and set on fire, and she begins to realize that she has stumbled on something really big.
