Somebody knows where the bodies are buried
Minister of State Anne-Marie Gallagher appears to have an unblemished record. Only she knows that two decades ago, she was integral to an underground mission which went disastrously wrong.
Now, unknown to Anne-Marie, DCI Jon Carne has received an anonymous tip-off, leading him to a body badly decomposed after twenty-five years underground.
When news reaches Westminster, Anne-Marie knows she's in danger. And with Carne closing in, there's not much time for her to decide how far she'll go to keep the past where it belongs.
