Summary: Phil King is a shopkeeper in a Suffolk town that was sealed off after a reported outbreak of the plague. Food is scarce, houses are empty and the town is under constant military patrol, with its inhabitants denied access to the outside world. The town's population has shrunk from over thirty thousand to barely a tenth of that figure and more people go missing every day. Unexpectedly, Phil is invited to a dinner party with politicians and members of the military where he meets the mysterious Miss
Jeffers. She offers Phil information about his missing wife and children - but only if he agrees to spy on his new lodger Leroy Preston and his friends. Caught between Leroy's resistance group and the authorities, Phil has difficult choices to make. The more he learns about the resistance, the authorities and 555, the more determined he becomes to fight back and find a way out of the prison that used to be his home.
