Blue Eriksen is a famous forensic archaeologist based at Northwestern University. She and her team are traveling the globe, testing mummies to research the use of hallucinogens in the development of ancient religions.  Armed with evidence from ancient peoples, Blue has become convinced that psilocybin--a hallucinogen derived from mushrooms--can prevent or cure drug addiction.  She hopes to develop testing and treatment centers.

Leeuwarden Associates is the cover name for a deeply secret  international organization that facilitates the production, delivery, and sale of illegal drugs worldwide, much as OPEC facilitates the sale of oil.  Leeuwarden considers Blue a long-term threat and sends Felix Hacker--one of their enforcers--to kill her.  Blue has no idea she's being stalked and prepares for a dig high in the Peruvian mountains...
