The two central characters in the book, outside of the police, are Kipp Brown, (who appears in Need You Dead) a seemingly very wealthy Brighton businessman, his wife, their teenage son, Mungo and their teenage daughter, Fleur. The story begins when Kipp takes Mungo to a football match at the Amex Stadium. As he arrives at the stadium entrance, along with the other 28,000 fans who are pouring in, Kipp bumps into a client. They chat for a couple of minutes then Kipp looks around and his son has vanished...
Maybe Mungo has gone to the loo, Kipp wonders? He hangs around for a couple of minutes, but kick-off will be any moment now. Mungo has his ticket so Kipp goes in and takes his seat. The game starts, but still Mungo, a keen supporter, has not appeared. Kipp becomes increasingly concerned. Then there is an emergency security announcement. A suspicious package has been seen in the stadium and they need an immediate evacuation.
In the panic that follows, Kipp looks desperately for Mungo, but without success.
