Freddie Lyon

Freddie returns to the ‘The Hour,’ having been fired after the Lord Elms live interview (taking the sword instead of Bel). Gone for several months traveling around the world, a corrupt landlord offers to buy his late father’s house in Notting Hill. Freddie’s quest to investigate and expose a secret program of nuclear testing provokes both the landlord and McCain, setting him on a trail that will lead deep into the worlds of backroom Soho and government corruption. As he becomes embroiled with the cover-up, it becomes clear that the ghosts of the past will not let Freddie go.
