HOW DO YOU INVESTIGATE YOUR OWN MURDER?

Professor Thomas Payne didn't intend to wind up dead on his caving vacation, and in truth he wasn't the victim. But proving his identity to the police becomes tricky after they pull his passport off the lookalike body.

Things go from bogus to baffling when a mysterious phone call at the crime scene leads to the arrest of the young scientist. His fate seems sealed when the victim's fingerprints match the professor's work visa.

Intervention by the police inspector's daughter frees Thomas to search for clues to prove his innocence. So, it's off around the UK with sculptress Terri, one jump ahead of the authorities -- and running from his estranged sociopathic father. One slip and claustrophobia will be the least of their problems.

Thomas' journey soon becomes as much about healing his troubled past as recovering his present self. Along the way, he'll battle betrayals by his envious staff, romance the rebellious artist, and suffer harrowing misadventures at historic sites in Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.

Travel -- even to find yourself -- was never so perilous.
