When Harper Jennings' geologist husband is invited to participate in a global symposium on water, she and their baby accompany him to Israel. While in the Old City of Jerusalem, Harper sees an American in trouble. Because she's with the baby, she doesn't intervene. Later, she finds out he was murdered. When she's invited to take part in a dig fifty miles away, she accepts, thinking it will be safer away from the city. But Hagit, the nanny she hires to watch the baby disagrees, saying that the evil eye is to blame, and that it follows Harper wherever she goes. This is a story of cults, Biblical interpretations, international terrorism, and survival.
