A petty thief and a pizza deliveryman are gunned down in an alley. A US Congressman's assistant falls in front of a subway train - three seemingly unrelated deaths. 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.
