Margery Benson’s life ended the day her father walked out of his study and never came back.  Forty years later, abandoning a dull job, she advertises for an assistant.  The successful candidate is to accompany Margery on an expedition to the other side of the world to search for a beetle that may or may not exist.  Enid Pretty is not who she had in mind.  But together they find themselves drawn into an adventure that exceeds all Margery’s expectations, eventually finding new life at the top of a red mountain.
