In 1982 Patricia 'Paddy' Meehan,lowly Girl Friday at the Glasgow Daily Post has journalistic aspirations,despite her male colleagues' sexist remarks. When three-year-old Brian Wilcox is murdered the chief suspect is Callum,Paddy's cousin's ten- year -old son and when his name is published in the paper,his family - wrongly - blame Paddy. Unconvinced of Callum's guilt Paddy links the murder to that of another little boy,some years earlier,whose alleged killer has just hung himself in prison. Paddy interviews the man's widow,using the name of a colleague,Heather,who is later murdered.
