Jim Bocks arrives at a remote hotel in rural Spain, his work as a crime scene photographer in New York far behind him, haunted by memories of the failed investigation into his own wife's death.
Solitude under vivid blue skies, pristine empty swimming pools and the scent of orange trees provide the escape he needs to relax and forget... until a connection with an enigmatic local woman leads to a new nightmare when he is the only witness to her abduction.
In a race against time and with an increasingly hostile world closing in around him, he must now race to solve overlapping mysteries in both past and present.
