Standing up against the Power-House is Tory member of Parliament and lawyer Edward Leithen, a self-described man of hesitation whose stance thrusts him into a reality he never knew existed. London becomes a sinister underworld in which he could be spirited away at any moment, never to be heard from again. Leithen quickly falls into a maze of paranoia, knowing that if he fails to stop the Power-House, their anarchy will consume the world.
