It's 1952 and 32-year-old newlywed Claire Pendleton has arrived in Hong Kong with her civil-servant husband Martin. She takes a position as piano teacher to Locket Chen, the daughter of wealthy socialite parents and quickly becomes intrigued by the family's unconventional English driver, Will Truesdale. Claire's love affair with Will is interwoven with flashbacks to the early 1940s, during the onset of Japanese hostilities and Hong Kong's swift fall, and glimpses of another woman--Trudy Laing, a Eurasian beauty with secrets of her own. Yet the past cannot remain hidden for long and as her involvement with Will grows, Claire soon finds herself at the centre of a web of secrets, lies, and murder, in which both her lover and the Chens are irretrievably entangled.
