In 1926 Edith leaves her toddler at a boarding school and travels to Northern Nigeria to join her husband. There she encounters spitting cobras, typhoid fever, and hostile British officers. Due to her contacts with native women, she is charged with investigating a grisly ritual murder. This draws her into the web of a spymaster who uses her Bohemian past to blackmail her. During the Second World War, her espionage and marriage spin out of control as British power in Africa begins to wane.
