The year is 1468. A young priest, Christopher Fairfax, arrives in a remote English village to conduct the funeral of his predecessor. The land around is strewn with ancient artefacts—coins, fragments of glass, human bones—which the old parson used to collect. Did his obsession with the past lead to his death? In this novel by the author of Fatherland, Fairfax is drawn more deeply into the isolated community, everything he believes—about himself, his faith and the history of his world—is about to be put to the test.

"Harris is a master of plotting and, in elegant, understated third-person prose, he ratchets the tension ever upwards.... A page-turner."—Guardian (London)
