In the city of Accra, the Voyager Hotel is widely known as a low-priced, well-run lodging perfectly suited to cash-strapped tourists. But one early March morning, it gains a notoriety it would rather not have. Hotel guest Heather Peterson, a beautiful, young Oregonian teacher, is found dead at the bottom of the pool.
The police authorities deem it an accidental drowning, but that raises troubling questions. Heather was a strong swimmer. How could she have drowned, and why was she naked? Paula Djan, principal of the school at which Heather was a volunteer, suspects foul play and begins to dig around.
As she discovers an increasing number of suspects, she encounters hostility from the police investigators, who take a dim view of her snooping. But much more than stepping on a few toes, she may be headed down a dangerous path where the killer lies in wait with every intention to make Paula the second death at the Voyager Hotel.
