From the cover: “It is a chance encounter with an unknown and drunk American in a restaurant in Mexico City that results in young British-born Steven Rutland meeting Dolores Sanchez-Mejia and being witness shortly afterwards to a brutal murder. It is their common interest in the pre-Colombian civilisation known as Chintu-Huachi — Steven has just done a television programme on it — that makes her take him to visit her adopted parents, Pablo and Denise d’Alcala, in their palatial villa at Cuernavaca. By this time Steven, charming, amoral, on the make, has fallen in love.”
