Broke, academic career in tatters, Mason Ambrose arrives on Isla de Sangre, a private tropical paradise, having accepted a peculiar job offer - $100, 000 to tutor a young woman who has lost her memory and her moral compass following a freak accident.
Through prone to sociopathic behaviour, Mason's student Londa is intelligent and captivating. Her stubbornness soon yields to be an enthusiasm for ethical dilemmas and thus her rehabilitation begins.
But all is not as it seems, When Mason encounters a strange little girl bearing remarkable similarities to Londa and suffering from the same malady he finds himself mired in mysteries for which mere philosophy provides no answers.
