When 20-year-old Lenny Barnes, paralysed in a rugby accident, commits suicide in the presence of Barnaby Johnson, the much-loved priest of a West Cornwall parish, the tragedy's reverberations open up the fault-lines between Barnaby and his nearest and dearest. The personal stories of his wife, children and lover illuminate and the gulfs of unspoken sadness that separate them all. Across this web of relations scuttles Barnaby's repellent nemesis - a man as wicked as his prey is virtuous.

    " Wonderful read. Well written and developed characters that you really get to know and his descriptions of Cornwall make you want to move there. Also very sensitive exploration of religion and the right to die. Highly recommended! "

    " Patrick Gale has always been one of my favourite authors and I think this is his best book yet. The beautifully written story of Father Barnaby, set in an area of Cornwall I know so well, pulls you in, and you dont want to let go. The interaction of past with present and the other charactes is so wonderfully done. A must read. "

    " I loved this book! I have only read one other of patrick gale's work - notes from an exhibition and wasn't overally enamoured by it. However, this novel beautifully ensnares you with its host of intriguing characters, and the jumping back and forward in time. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and look forward to reading more of his work.
