Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
"Ianto, please. It's all... it’s all gone wrong. I don’t know what to think any more."
Away Days at Torchwood aren't what you'd expect. Yes, there's the forced camaraderie, the team-building exercises, and the chance for long-held rivalries to boil over. But Torchwood Away Days also have the potential to get very lethal very quickly.
Yvonne Hartman's extremely worried by this year's Away Day. But she's got other things on her mind – something's very wrong with Torchwood.
