A rogue Irish intelligence operative has laid waste to one of Manchester's key criminal groups. Before killing himself, the rogue warned Deputised Expert Tom Irwin of worse to come.
Irwin has remained in the city, but is now carrying a gun at all times. His minder, Kay, is trying to avoid him, but keeps needing the information he can provide. Most recently, Irwin has confirmed that someone in the North west of England has the components to build a dirty bomb.
