When he raises the matter, he is ridiculed, threatened with firing, and finally beaten up by gangs of thugs. Then, after the suspicious death of an old man with terminal cancer, Fraser knows he must act. He reports his suspicions and is persuaded by Marcus Evans, a mysterious civil servant, to work undercover to find the killer. Now his worries are just about to begin.
