When good intelligence becomes bad analysis, people die.
This is Wilson’s nightmare.
As communication intercepts, dead terrorists, and institutional blindness lead the Wests ‘five eyes’ intelligence community to conclude an Islamic attack against mainland Europe is imminent, Wilson, a crotchety, ‘old-school’ intelligence analyst, has doubts.
When a cryptic voice message, left by a murdered British intelligence officer, points to a traitor deep in the core of England’s domestic anti-terrorist organization MI5, Wilson’s doubts intensify.
Unable to convince his superiors that something else is going on, Wilson has no choice but to go rouge.
Out from behind his desk and in to the field, Wilson, untrained, desperate, and increasingly certain that the intelligence community is looking the wrong way, relies on his own brand of intelligence analysis.
Running for his life, Wilson begins to connect the dots and believes he has discovered a diabolical attack far more complex and terrifying than he could have imagined.
Is Wilson right and the entire intelligence community wrong?
Are Islamic terrorists planning an attack, or is something far more sinister going on?
Can Wilson overcome the Bad Analysis blinding his superiors?
Or will Wilson’s nightmare come true and people die?
