1979 by Val McDermid


She's on the hunt for a killer story . . .

1979. It's the winter of discontent, and Allie Burns is chasing her first big scoop. One of few women in the newsroom, she needs something explosive for the boys' club to take her seriously. Soon Allie and fellow reporter Danny Sullivan are making powerful enemies with their investigations - and Allie won't stop there.

When she discovers a terrorist threat close to home, she devises a dangerous plan to make her name. But Allie is a woman in a man's world . . . and putting a foot wrong could be fatal.

'Allie is a fabulous character, I'll go wherever she takes me' Marian Keyes 

'A thrilling snapshot of a fascinating era' Jane Harper
