Her partner, Tony, swam out and savedtheir sons lifethen drowned before her eyes. When Decca and Tony first met, a decade earlier, she was a renowned Guardian journalist profiling leading politicians of the day, he was a dreadlocked criminal with a history of drug dealing and violence. No one thought the romance would last, but it diduntil the tide swept Tony away, plunging Decca into the dark chasm of random tragedy.
