But what Jake sees there is shocking and terrifying and leads him to investigate a clandestine organisation - the Order of Malichea. And then sinister things start happening: Jake is 'accidentally' pushed, almost falling under a tube train; Lauren, Jake's girlfriend, has all her notes on the Order stolen; and then Jake returns home to find a dead body in his flat and is accused of murder. Who is trying to scare Jake? Is it the British government? Or other, more sinister agencies? Either way, Jake and Lauren must fight for their lives ...
