The Killing of a Journalist
A young investigative journalist and his fiancée are brutally murdered in their home in Slovakia. Their deaths inspire the biggest protests in that country since the fall of Communism. The story takes an unexpected turn when a source leaks the secret murder case file to the murdered journalist’s colleagues. It includes the computers and encrypted communications of the assassination’s alleged mastermind, a businessman closely connected to the country’s ruling party. As they trawl through these encrypted messages, the journalists discover that their country has been captured by corrupt oligarchs, judges and law enforcement officials. A reckoning awaits.
