Swiss-American police officer Agnes Lüthi is on leave from
her job in Lausanne, Switzerland, recovering from a nasty

colleague invites her to the world’s premier watch and
jewelry trade show at the grand Messe Basel Exhibition
Hall. Little does Agnes know that another friend of hers,
Julien Vallotton, is at the same show—and he’s looking for
Vallotton was friends with Guy Chavanon, a master
watchmaker, who died a week ago, in an accident. At least
that’s what the authorities are calling it. But shortly
before his death, Chavanon had boasted that he’d
discovered a new technique that would revolutionize the
watchmaking industry, and his daughter believes he may

Reluctantly, Agnes agrees to investigate Chavanon’s death.
But the world of Swiss watchmaking, one of the country’s
oldest arts, is guarded and secretive, and time is ticking
fast for Agnes to find the killer—before he strikes again.
