Seeking comfort after her husband's adultery has destroyed her marriage, she heads to Provence, where she was raised and where her favorite Uncle George currently lives. When she arrives at his house, she unexpectedly finds an ambulance pulling away with his poisoned body.
Devastated by her beloved uncle's death, Michèle goes to great lengths to find his murderer. Readers watch as she works to solve the puzzle of her uncle's death which leads to another riddle involving a hitherto unknown traitor of 50 years before.

A rumpled, engaging widower accompanies her on her quest and she grows very fond of him.
"My novel depicts a woman's journey of self-discovery and healing," Robinson writes. "It is placed against the backdrop of a murder mystery and a depiction of France's best-known far-right political party."
