A novel about robbery, corruption and the mainstream media
James is an aspiring journalist at a newspaper office. The story starts at the point where he has become bored with what he is doing and he is thinking of resigning. Going into work one day he is given the opportunity to take up a story about a robbery that involves the death of a security guard and he thinks his life is about to change. When a letter is made publicly available that criticises the police for not treating warnings seriously, James thinks there is more to the robbery and tries to push his editor to let him investigate the story further. When his editor refuses, James resigns.
Caught between a fiance who calls him a conspiracy theorist, a widow who is desperate for the truth and a mainstream media who is unwilling to investigate further, James investigates a deepening mystery involving organised crime, police informants and corruption.
