Her hopes for a healing hiatus are dashed when she finds a dead neighbor in the goldfish pond of her rented house. The police accuse her of murder. She has no family, few close friends and a wobbly grasp of the language. She tries Xanax and when that fails, she goes on the lam. For one terrifying weeken Maggie manages to elude the persistent police inspector and discover the truth. As she hunts for the murderer, she outwits a bunch of skinheads, foils a bomb plot and traps her neighbor's killer
