Try the Morgue opens with Maria, the 25-year-old protagonist, being lured by the promise of a "better salary and more 'intelligent' work" into taking a position as assistant to Jimmy Liu, a gay international arms dealer mogul. Before long, she shows a talent for the cutthroat negotiating necessary in this field. Jimmy's charisma keeps Maria enthralled with her work, even when her assignments end with her dumping her long-term boyfriend, hiding in a bunker in Chechnya, getting carjacked in China, and escaping from a hospital in Pakistan. Maria has the instincts to deal with the job's physical dangers, but it's harder to guard against its moral and emotional ones. Eventually, Maria has a falling out with Jimmy and goes to work for his competitor. When she discovers that her first new assignment involves child-trafficking in the United Arab Emirates, she quits the business for good, settling down with the old boyfriend she dumped to raise a daughter. Still, traces of her old life linger.
