Four years ago, Gabriel Ash was working with the British government investigating hijackings in Somalia. But when his wife and sons disappeared, presumably taken--and probably killed--by pirates, his life fell apart. He has sudden reason to hope when a senior policeman suggests that his sons might still be alive--until that policeman is murdered. Still, there seems to be some link to a local operation, and Ash, no longer a government agent, is determined to find it.Meanwhile, his friend Hazel Best has been having a tough time of her own.

Hazel and Ash are both beginning to take more of an interest in the outside world, when a neighboring archaeologist decides to dig up a curious mound of earth near the ice house on his land.

I really enjoyed the writing in this book. The problem is that the second half of the book, when the plot needs to be starting to make sense of this bizzare situation, it falls apart. Who seriously could believe (even within the confines of fiction) in what eventuates. For me it just didn't work. First half of the book I really enjoyed and was caught up by the characters and the plot but the second failed to convince.
