"Set in Glasgow in 1982, Paddy Meehan is a young girl in a world of men; a feisty 'copy boy' in the sexist, hard-boozing, cutthroat world of journalism. Paddy dreams of being an investigative reporter, and she grabs the opportunity when a young boy, Brian Wilcox, is kidnapped and found murdered. Paddy sees connections to an eight year-old crime that nobody else sees and she is determined to make it her story.
