A man who was supposed to help her figure out what happened to her years ago that gave her amnesia and destroyed her career turns out to be dead.

Lydia wants nothing to do with the Guild, and Emmett is worried that she'll use his position as an excuse to leave him. He wants to marry her, a Covenant Marriage, which is permanent and a serious business on a planet where a divorce is nearly impossible to get. He just has to convince Lydia that she wants the marriage as much as he does, while they both try to catch a killer and find out exactly what happened to Lydia all those years ago. There is supposedly archaeology in this book, but the things the archaeologists do more closely resemble the things that looters do than anything.
