Burma, the child of the UK embassador, went unaccounted for in the 1980s. Detected in the northern part of the state, Michael Atwood is in immediate peril, caught between the sides waging a fierce civilian conflict and with no way to return to Rangoon. The best chance of saving him is to rely on Thuza, a ruby trafficker who is offering him an exit.

Thuza has lived her whole lifetime in a border city between rebels and goverment troops, never deciding on one side, but trying to live on both.
