Recently discovered oil on the barren and isolated island of Forway has caused a plan for evacuation so that the entire island can be used for an oil rig. The islanders, however, intend to declare their independence from England. Into this volatile situation comes Tamara Hoyland, archaeologist and civil servant whose link to Forway is twofold: a dead lovers whose family is there and a task of espionage. Sudden "accidental" deaths lead her to realize that the services of a detective might be more needed than the services of a spy.
