DSI William Lorimer and his wife Maggie are taking their first extended holiday for the first time in years, and they’re looking for an adventure. What better place than Zimbabwe, with its bustling cities and beautiful scenery?

Back in Glasgow, PC Daniel Kohi, former inspector with the Zimbabwean police, finds himself uncomfortably close to a murder investigation. Why did the murdered man appear at Daniel’s house just hours before he was killed? And how he is connected to the troubled family history of Netta Gordon, Daniel’s dear friend and lodger?

But it’s not just Netta’s history that’s about to resurface. For in Zimbabwe, rumours are circulating about Daniel Kohi, and the couple from Scotland who appear to know him. Rumours which could place the Lorimers in unimaginable peril.
