display_descriptionThrough a quirky set of circumstances, Lara McClintoch finds herself in a partnership with her ex-husband Clive Swain. Clive has grandiose ideas, but expects everyone else to do the work to make them happen. Lara put up with Clive because her best friend is involved with him. She reluctantly agrees to his latest scheme to draw attention to their antique business starting with her acting as a tour guide to the ancient and mysterious North African country of Tunisia. Lara plans to purchase artifacts and furnishings for a client while guiding her charges. The trip starts off on the right foot. Everyone seems congenial and friendly towards one another. However, over time Lara notices strange happenings amidst the people on the tour. The weirdness turns sinister when guests die in what seems like accidents until finally a clear- cut murder occurs.
