After three years in the wilderness, hardboiled reporter Gerry Conway is back at his desk at the Glasgow Tribune.

Once the paper's star reporter, Conway now plays second fiddle to his former protégé, crime reporter Martin Moir.

When Glasgow journalist Gerry Conway receives a phone call promising unsavoury information about Scottish Justice Minister Peter Lyons, his instinct is that this apparent scoop won't warrant space in The Tribune . But as Conway's curiosity grows and his leads proliferate, his investigation takes him from Scotland to Belfast. Shocked by the sectarian violence of the past, and by the prejudice and hatred he encounters even now, Conway soon grows obsessed with the story of Lyons and all he represents.
