They said it was suicide.
He doesn't believe a word of it.
A colossal cordon wall holds a mostly forgotten city in the east of England under quarantine: nobody knows what happened with those ducks, and nobody seems to care.
Newspaper editor Marcus Cockburn is finding it harder and harder to give a damn about his life and work, but when his secret lover is murdered, he begins to regret wishing for more excitement in the city. As he clumsily chases the truth surrounding her death, his questionable, inept decisions take him out of his depth, until he will eventually give anything - even his morals - to reclaim those little things in life that he once felt so boring.
