For decades retired British intelligence officer Ralph Foresby has kept silent. But Ralph is dying and he won’t take his secrets to the grave.
Katie Priestman, a fiercely independent young woman with a high-flying City career, and Simon Cranford, an academic with a troubled past are drawn into an uneasy alliance when Katie promises Ralph that she will help to reveal the explosive information he has concealed for so long. But there are people desperate to stop them. People who will do almost anything to prevent the truth from coming out.
Threatened by powerful figures from Britain’s Cold War past, and pursued by rival intelligence agencies, Katie and Simon are in a race to unleash seismic revelations that will rock the British establishment, and turn the world’s geopolitical landscape upside down.
Meanwhile Katie’s terrifying secret admirer is closing in.
Who is he, and when will he strike?
