Frank Delaney, an investigative journalist and sometime spy, is on assignment in Phuket, Thailand, in the aftermath of the tsunami. Disaster victim identification teams from police forces across the globe have descended on this holiday location to carry out their gruesome work. Delaney discovers that, against all logic, someone is trying to prevent identification of one of the bodies lying in a makeshift beachside morgue. His search for the reason follows a trail through Thailand's seedy child sex trade to an elaborate cover-up in Germany and France. But someone is desperate to stop him.
