Lara finds her reputation tarnished when one of her wealthiest clients buys a rare Mackintosh writing cabinet on her word, only to learn that it's a fake. The next day Lara finds the dealer who sold it to him dead - with an axe lodged in his head.
Lara's client is arrested for the murder, but something doesn't feel right. While helping out the police, she comes across two invoices for the cabinet - and begins to believe that the Mackintosh she first saw was, in fact, authentic. The dealer set up a scam, portraying two cabinets as real and pocketing the outrageous price...twice.
To save her reputation and prove her client's innocence, Lara follows the paperwork to the Orkney Islands off the northeast coast of Scotland. There, surrounded by surreal beauty and ancient ruins, she is pulled into a centuries-old Viking saga and a troubling quest that could end in danger - and may just rewrite history.
