A Greek billionaire throws a party on his private island, the highlight of which is a murderous game. The events are recounted through the eyes of a young archeologist, on the island to excavate an ancient temple of Poseidon.

Alexander Krisos throws a week-long party every summer on his private Greek island. Attendees usually include European nobility, Texas oilmen, ballerinas and bullfighters, millionaire politicos in exile, Japanese potentates, artists, and gorgeous models. People would kill to be invited to these lavish parties - but no one really expects murder to become part of the festivities.
Jay Chandler, an archeologist excavating an ancient temple of Poseidon and a friend of the Krisos family, finds himself caught up in the gathering's sinister events. Fearful that he may be the next victim, Jay must play the part of a modern Theseus as he faces a contemporary minotaur down in the island's vast caverns.
From the party's start under the bright Aegean sky to the finale in the underworld of dark caves, Krisos' guests are pulled to their destinies by a force as powerful as any invoked by ancient Greek gods.
