When archaeologist Louise Cantor returns to Sweden from a dig in Greece, her world collapses with the discovery of her only child dead in his bed. Henrik turns out to have led multiple lives and held many secrets - including his HIV-positive status - that she knew nothing about, and part of her shock over his death stems from the realization that he concealed so much from her. Louise is convinced his death cannot be a suicide, and her grief and anger become an all-consuming desire to know who her son really was and what could have left him dead at the age of twenty-eight. Her investigation takes her to Spain, Australia, and, in her most disorienting and perilous trip, Mozambique, home to a sinister AIDS hospice run by a powerful philanthropist who is somehow linked to Henrik. Her travels also bring her closer and closer to a danger she cannot yet understand, while those who dare to help her put their lives at risk.
