1979. It is the winter of discontent, and reporter Allie Burns is hunting for the story that will make her name. There are few women in the newsroom and she needs an explosive scoop for the boys' club to take her seriously. Allie and fellow junior reporter Danny Sullivan aren't afraid to raise hackles as they expose the underbelly of respectable Scotland. But shining light into the darkness creates powerful enemies. When Allie comes up with a plan to infiltrate a Glasgow terror plot, it's the break she needs - and much more than just a story. Allie is a woman in a man's world - and putting a foot wrong could be fatal.
