Facing an increasingly implacable enemy, Stella and her lover, Kit, struggle to crack the code that hides the skulls intended resting place.
Their search takes them from the intellectual rigour of Cambridge University to the untamed wildness of Englands prehistoric stone circles.
But time is against them, and they have only days hours left to uncover the secret that may yet save the world.
