|A mysterious light appears in the sky over the south Shropshire hills; four teachers from a nearby school inexplicably disappear; a West-Midlands MI5 outpost is closed without notice; its boss - the beautiful Julia Anderson, mysteriously vanishes without trace. It seems that Julia's former colleague, misogynistic ex-policeman Brian Humphries, is the only person interested in discovering the whole truth. But is Brian quite the person he seems to be? And can he save Julia and expose the conspiracy of silence which surrounds the disappearances before The Service gets to him? Or will his efforts instead be thwarted by Julia’s ex-flatmate, recovered paranoid schizophrenic Peter Williams? With every twist and turn, the intricacies of this intriguing and darkly humorous thriller take the reader further and further into the murky depths of Peter’s mental illness and MI5’s determination to keep their secret – whatever the collateral damage to those who stand in their way.
