A top politician stands accused of multiple murder.


A psychiatrist is threatened and the life of her small son is in danger.


A well-known investigative journalist is forced to put his career on the line and his future in doubt.


And all three situations are linked in complex and mysterious ways.


In a twisting plot which reveals many surprises, a situation emerges involving conspiracy at the highest level, bribery, impersonation, strong-arm tactics ... and sheer terror.
