A political suicide starts the media guessing. When Sonia Baker, a young political researcher, falls on the London Underground tracks and is killed, her high-profile boss Labor Member of Parliament Stephen Collins, is devastated. The press smells blood and questions are asked about the nature of his relationship with Sonia. The story is pursued by a leading newspaper, and Senior Reporter Cal McCaffrey, is put on the case—his long-standing friendship with Collins considered a bonus by the editor, Cameron Foster. McCaffrey is uncomfortable with pursuing what amounts to a domestic scandal, until his colleague Della discovers a surprising link between Sonia’s death and the murder of a black teenager named Kelvin Stagg that same morning. Someone clearly wanted Sonia dead. But why?
