As homicide detective Thomas Craven investigates the death of his activist daughter, he uncovers not only her secret life, but a corporate cover-up and government collusion that attracts an agent tasked with cleaning up the evidence.
The character Jedburgh is a British-accented secret operative of some sort. "Jedburgh" was also the name of a well-known British WWII program whereby they covertly inserted 3-agent teams, called "Jedburgh Teams," of covert Allied operators into Nazi-occupied France.
Senator Jim Pine:
You left as a Master Sergeant of a heavy weapons platoon.
Thomas Craven: Ah, yes sir.
Senator Jim Pine: How'd you do that at 20?
Thomas Craven: Everybody else was dead.
Craven makes the statement that his daughter was poisoned by thallium, pronouncing it "thay-li-um". The first syllable is correctly pronounced to rhyme with the first syllable in "California".
