When a dead body is fished out of the Thames, reporter Michael Billing is assigned to the story. Whilst at first the story seems bland and unimportant, Billing soon discovers that the body was that of a high profile Egyptian diplomat. This leads him to the Egyptian Embassy, where he is greeted by a receptionist, the late diplomat’s fiancée. Overcome with grief, she is replaced by undercover reporter Jenny Drew. Jenny quickly uncovers a web of illegal activity and, with the help of Inspector Corcoran, the two reporters are drawn deeper into the conspiracy.
