London journalist Sue Bennett lends her car to a friend who's on an assignment, but she doesn't realise that she's giving her a death trap. When the car blows up, and Anil dies, Sue is convinced that she's the target of animal rights activists. After more explosions and more deaths, Sue buys names and addresses that lead her to Sean Beck, a supplier of Semtex to terrorists. Unable to tackle Beck by herself, Sue enlists help, uncovering corruption in the police force and links to another ruthless criminal. When all Sue's questions are finally answered, there is a high price to pay.
