What would you do if reading the wrong book could get you arrested?
Clara is haunted by the disappearance of her father when she was 11-years-old.
When she was a child, her father was taken by the Authorisation Bureau for the crime of teaching banned books to his students.
Now Clara teaches at the same university, and her weapons are the banned books her father left behind. But she has started something dangerous, something that brings her to the attention of Major Jackson. The same man who arrested Clara's father.
Will she be the next one to disappear?
