In the late 1940s, Vicky Hampden leaves the gloom of post-war London and goes to France to look for her wartime lover, Philippe d'Icère. Unsure if he's dead or alive, she's determined either to find him or to find out how and why he died.
But stirring up the ghosts of war isn't always safe, and Vicky's powerful and sinister father sends a young lawyer, Julius Drummond, to find Vicky and make her return to England. However, Julius has his own reasons for being interested in the fate of Philippe d'Icère, and instead of persuading her to go home, he encourages Vicky in her search. Their inquiries lead them to the south of France, where memories of the Resistance and of collaborators are still fresh, and it is there that Vicky discovers not only how many people had reason to want Philippe dead, but just how far they are now prepared to go to prevent the truth being revealed.
