The threats escalate into outright violence when an explosion rips through the church hall where Annabelle is due to hold a meeting - with fatal consequences.
The only piece of evidence Harper has is a scrap of paper left at the scene containing a fragment from an old folk song.
But what is its significance?As polling day approaches and the attacks increase in menace and intensity, Harper knows he's in a race against time to uncover the culprit before more deaths follow.
With the lives of his wife and daughter at risk, the political becomes cruelly personal .
