Former undercover agent Tamara Hoyland thinks she's left murder and mayhem behind when she retires from the British government's secret Department E to return full time to archeological work. Then botanist Louise Dench turns up dead, apparently by suicide, and Tamara can't shake the feeling that there's more to this pair of slashed wrists than meets the eye. Hoyland wants to believe that her current flame, Louise's colleague Alastair Hope, isn't involved, but where men are concerned Tamara doesn't consider herself the best judge of character; after all, one of her former lovers was found guilty of murder. Alastair certainly had reason to wish the deceased out of the way: He and Louise were battling over the publication of ground-breaking discoveries made by Hoe and Louis's husband, geologist Robert Waugh, during the Brazilian expedition where Waugh mysteriously met his death. Others also have an interest in the findings: There's Tamara's friend, Professor Thea Crawford, who found the body, and can't seem to wipe the blood off her hands; and the Grail Foundation,, which financed the expedition and is run by a pair of unscrupulous businessmen determined to ensure that their investment pays off. As usual, Tamara would sooner embark on an adventure of her own than accept any easy answers. So, she revives her secret agent status, needing more than faith and hope to solve this homicide.
