Wellingtonian Lauren Fraser is easing into a comfortable retirement when her historian friend Ro reveals a shocking secret. Ro’s research has uncovered the attempted poisoning of a New Zealand prime minister. Why has the plot been covered up? As they get closer to the truth, Lauren and Ro find themselves in danger.

Set as Jacinda Ardern’s government comes to power, one death follows another, and a cold case is not all they have on their hands.
