One of the radio show's personalities is kidnapped, the threats begin to escalate in intensity, and Strachey finds himself in the middle of an altogether different kind of case. With precious little time left, Strachey must now uncover the connection between a radical but peaceful group from the past and the increasingly violent actions of the present."--Jacket."@en ;

But the J-Bird's producer is afraid that the attacks might get worse, and the J-Bird himself is eager to confront his attackers. Since Strachey is known to have had contact with the original members of the radical group in whose name these acts were committed, the producer and the shock-jock want him to track them down. Since Strachey needs the money, and is intrigued by the idea that this group might be back in action, he takes the job."" ;
