Emily Delahunty is an English novelist, and one of four survivors in a mysterious train explosion that occurs on the way to Milan. With the survivors being detained by investigators, Emily offers her home in Umbria to her three fellow survivors: a retired English general a young German photographer, Werner, and a little girl who was orphaned by the blast. Tended to by Emily's faithful butler, Quinty and surrounded by the lush scenery of their locale, the four form an unexpected bond - until the arrival of the girl's overly staid uncle, Thomas Riversmith. An Italian investigator, Girotti , also arrives, offering some unsettling possibilities regarding the explosion's origin.
