When a group of Americans embark on a cycling tour through the ravishing Dordogne region of France, they are counting on castles, caves decorated with prehistoric art and gourmet dining—but certainly not murder.  Yet unseen currents have been set in motion a continent away, where a Southern California businessman is convicted of poisoning his wife.  As the cyclists enjoy their final dinner at a grand chateau hotel,  passions erupt between Amarantha, a British archaeologist who guides tourists through the legendary caves, her lover, Hughes, a Parisian who owns the cycling company, and Hallie—an alluring young woman from Los Angeles with a sunny nature and a dark past.
