In 1971, Trace Clarke's unusual aptitude for languages leads him to take a position with the NSA, the alternative being a stint in the U.S. Army in Viet Nam. Trace is sent to Yorkshire, England, to translate Egyptian military communications, which strangely enough come to earth at a listening post in the beautiful Dales country. There Trace falls in love with Dani, troubled daughter of Nathan Britten, unexpected heir to a baronial estate and all its financial problems, including a large stable of expensive but unproductive racehorses. When Trace uncovers important details of an imminent Egyptian invasion of Israel — what would be the start of the 1973 Yom Kippur War — foreign operatives from both Egypt and Israel target Trace and those around him, including Dani. A winter storm raging over a mysterious geological site called Malham Cove mirrors the hostile forces at work and seems to draw the protagonists into its chaotic and death-dealing center.
