His past was a lie - his present a mystery. There is a drowned village in the South of France called St. Juste, a village where secrets were buried in the Second World War; a village swiftly coming back into the light of day as a summer drought empties the reservoir that hides it. Tom Chapel comes to St. Juste to discover why a local man, Marcel Coultard, has left his 28 million dollar fortune to his daughter Romilly, and why shortly after his bequest, Romilly was abducted and attacked, and left in a life threatening coma. The local police are not forthcoming: there is a code of silence about Romilly and about another dead girl, a silence which suggest a deeper and abiding mystery that Tom must uncover. His search takes him back to when this part of France was ruled by the Vichy government, at odds with the Resistance fighters who tried to smuggle Jews away to safety: Tom included. Yet, not all the women made it: some were betrayed: but by who? Who amongst the French people he meets could be harbouring a cold blooded killer who forty years later is prepared to kill and kill again to preserve his secret?
