WHAT IF EVERYTHING THEY TOLD YOU WAS A LIE?
Former MP Francis Morahan swore never to return to politics. But when he’s asked to chair a government inquiry into the intelligence agencies’ record against terror, it’s clear that it’s an order from the top – not a request.
Sara Shah once teetered on the edge of a dangerous circle. Now a lawyer in a prestigious London firm, she’s put her past behind her. Until a letter delivered by hand summons her to join the Morahan Inquiry.
Duty-bound, Sara accepts. Armed only with a list of names, dodging her onetime connection to the networks she infiltrates, she finds herself led by an anonymous source into the darkest corners of post-9/11 Britain.
What, or who, was the weapon at the heart of British terror?
