(From the publisher):
At loose ends after breaking up with her boyfriend, Lara runs into her old college gang - and begins a night of drinking and disaster. The Dovercourt Divas - named after the road they lived on at the University of Toronto - wind up at an opening at the Cottingham Museum, where Lara's college flame, Károly Molnár, is unveiling an extraordinary artifact that will put the Cottingham on the map.
The Magyar Venus is the head and torso of a woman carved from mammoth ivory during the Upper Paleolithic period. But its appearance causes a mysterious - and distressing - reaction in one of the Divas. And for Lara, the rest of the night is a blur...
Waking up the next morning, Lara doesn't remember much. And when she finds out that her friend later committed suicide, she has a horrible feeling that she had something to do with it. Add to that the Divas' doubts about Molnár and the authenticity of the Venus, and Lara has the biggest headache of her life.
To clear her conscience, she must trace the provenance of the Venus, while keeping the suddenly amorous Molnár at bay. Budapest is her destination. The truth - and peace of mind - are her goal...
