Journalist Simon Tomlin meets the Insight Team of the Sunday Times in London to strike a deal to expose the covert activities of political groups. Britain is in the grip of socio-political upheaval and forces on the Right and Left intend to exploit the angry public mood. Simon steps into the fold on his first major job for a national newspaper. The resulting feature in the Sunday Times on 21 April 2002 will change his life forever. The Insight team was eventually disbanded in 2006, exposed as dealing in the "dark arts" and criminality. His exposé will take him into the shadows to walk with murderers, gangsters, drug-dealers, radicals, war criminals and News of the World telephone hackers. In the end, he will be 'exposed' as an alleged MI5 agent and his life will be in serious danger. What he does not realise until it's too late, is that journalists and their friends in HM Government betrayed him from the outset. Will he succeed to clear his name in the midst of the devastating Hackgate scandal?
