When an old customer of her antiquarian book business is found murdered, Dido Hoare is compelled to investigate the matter and find the killer, but during her probe, she learns details about the customer's dark past that make her fear for her own safety

Blackwell North Amer
Antiquarian bookshop owner Dido Hoare has a lot on her mind these days. In her second appearance, Dido is trying to run her store, juggling single motherhood with her infant son Ben, worrying about her aging father Barnabas, and her on-again, off-again relationship with a married police officer. The last thing she needs is to find Tom Ashe, a homeless man with whom she'd struck up an odd friendship, apparently deathly ill on her doorstep.
Ashe's illness turns out to be a relatively mild recurrence of the malaria he picked up in his military service - a relief that turns to bewilderment when Ashe first disappears, then shows up, hands Dido an exotic necklace, mutters a few mysterious words, and drops out of sight again. The next day Dido discovers he has been murdered.
Determined to find Ashe's killer, and convinced that the necklace is a clue to his secret, Dido and Barnabas begin a search that leads to a surprising truth about Ashe's past life and the baring of a nightmarish past full of deceit and treachery, as well as peril for Dido and her father.
