It's Labour Day, Camilla's favourite weekend of the year. She's planning to relax and ponder what's happening in her relationship with policman Sgt. Ray Deveau. She's emphatically t planning to get involved in anything that means trouble. No wonder the news that an old acquaintance has had an accident comes as a surprise. There must be some mistake. By the time Camilla unearths Laura's connection to a violent revolutionary group active two decades earlier, she's had several blows to the head and discovered that people shes been talking to keep ending up dead. Someone will do anything to keep Laura's connections secret. Getting arrested is the least of Camilla's problems.
