Kate Ballard is running for State Premier. Committed and rigorous, her victory seems assured... until a shock new leader is elected in opposition: David McLeod, a popular TV and Radio identity... and a man Kate had a secret, tumultuous affair with several years ago. To the world at large, David and Kate offer a compelling battle of style versus substance... But a paranoid Kate fears that their complicated history is a trump card waiting to be played. Told in six parts, building to an election-night finale, this is a cat- and-mouse game, played out on a grand scale.
