Gabriella, a senior negotiator in the FCO's Counter-Terrorism Unit, runs a small and powerful team based in Whitehall. She is tenacious, hard-working, and the family breadwinner. Her husband Tom - a freelance architect - looks after their two small children. When Gabriella returns from a seven-month stint in Moscow, something doesn't seem right.
Isobel is a journalist working for the local paper in Camden. Walking home from a party one night, she witnesses a horrific attack. But someone has seen her, and is making themselves known in increasingly frightening ways. As Isobel starts to investigate, she uncovers a network of human trafficking and exploitation.
While Gabriella's life begins to unravel, Isobel gets closer to the truth, and the two women's lives converge.
