Matters escalate when two bodies are found in the car park, slumped over their steering wheels, stabbed to death. Then everything is thrown into chaos as a devastating virus infects the agency’s systems. A hidden camera. Hate mail. A nasty practical joke. It’s clear that the Abbott Agency has been targeted.
