When Rebus investigates the suicide of a petty crook at an investment bank, he discovers the man has a photograph of a child in Africa, with the words "Alto Chicampo". He finds a connection from the man to a chemical company, which is building a plant in the city supported by local politicians eager for the employment opportunities for the city. He also finds a link to an ex-employee, who is planning to blow the whistle on the company. When she is also found dead, the situation becomes murkier, with the whiff of corruption in high places.
