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 has struck up an odd friendship, apparently deathly ill on her doorstop.Ashes illness turns out to be a relatively mild reoccurrence 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 Ashes killer, and convinced that the necklace is a clue to his secret, Dido and Barnabus begin a search that leads to a surprising truth about Ashes past life and the bearing of a nightmarish past full of deceit and treachery, as well as peril for Dido and her father.
