    Meet Theodore Carter, the hard-living roustabout editor of a newspaper, Intercom, which focuses on intelligence matters. When the new owners of the paper begin to make available to Carter real classified information things spin out of control. The paper increasingly comes to the wrong type of attention, and so follows the introduction to A Coffin for Dimitrios crime writer anti-hero Charles Latimer. Latimer wants to spill the beans and go public. And then he disappears without warning.
