COIRA KEIR is a respected police officer. When a bomb explodes outside the North British Council Building in Edinburgh, dozens of bystanders are left dead. Among the critically wounded is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, whose safety was Keir’s responsibility. Now Keir is missing.
MI5’s Sebastian Blakeslee and Lorna Ainsworth are tasked with tracking Keir down before more bombs go off. What follows is a chase towards the front of an intensifying war. Meanwhile, someone seems to be going to extraordinary lengths to stop Keir being found.
October Song is a gripping reflection on a world on the edge of collapse.
