Little Dorrit by Andrew Davies( Visual )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amy Dorrit's (Claire Foy) gentle spirit has never been dampened by the confining walls of the Marshalsea Prison she's lived in her whole life. Despite the dark shadow of debtor's prison, Amy lovingly cares for her father William Dorrit (Tom Courtenay), the longest serving inmate. A possibly redemptive light unexpectedly shines in the form of Arthur Clennam (Matthew Macfadyen), who has been left with the intriguing threads of a mystery after his father's death -- threads that will intertwine his family and fate with the Dorrits. Clennam's exhaustive search for answers involves murder, fortunes gained and lost, the upper echelons and lowest dregs of society, and most surprising of all, a tender romance. Adapted by Andrew Davies (Bleak House, Pride and Prejudice), Little Dorrit, based on the book by Charles Dickens, is a sprawling story as timely as it is moving. - Publisher

The dead assistant was the chief researcher for Congressman Stephen Collins, spearheading hearings into the role of private security firm PointCorp. She was also his lover. Cal McAffrey, a rumpled, old-school metro reporter at the Washington Globe is covering the first story. He was Collins' college roommate, and had a brief affair with Anne, Collins' wife. Their personal history may be exploited, as Cal spies a conspiracy waiting to be uncovered. Teamed with aspiring young Globe political blogger Della Frye by his crusty editor, evidence begins to pile up, and new pieces start to fall into place. Leads are run down, supporting reporters are brought in, as Cal and Della work together in an attempt to connect the dots before the clock runs out. Cal will discover at least one truth: when fortunes are at stake, no one's integrity, love, or life is safe
