When soldier of fortune Robert Morgan is caught digging up weapons in what was an old Soviet arms stash, he is turned over to MI-5 for questioning. The security agents determine that a sophisticated laser, used for guiding missiles to their target, is missing from the stash and they are convinced there is a terrorist plot underway. Adam is put in charge of interrogating Morgan and with no more than an estimated 48 hours before the attack, Adam finds himself unable to extract any information using conventional methods. Gradually, he begins to use so-called aggressive techniques bringing into question just how far they are prepared to go to get the information they need. Harry Pearce meanwhile has been short-listed for the soon to be vacant MI-5 Director-General position and prepares for his interview. Written by

'Imagine' and 'if' compassion may be a very good thing but it's not always useful in this job.
