DCI Rachel Carey is living a lonely, paranoid existence, struggling with thwarted ambitions while seconded to Counter Terrorism Command's 'mapping' department. She's officially joined the highly classified Correction team, but has yet to be truly let in.

Something is very wrong, but can she work out what before Britain's security is irrevocably compromised?
