'A gripping mystery that holds the reader to the very last page, and a marvellous portrait of St Andrews in the sixteenth century' — John Burnside

‘Shirley McKay is an intelligent and entertaining novelist who deserves to be better known. TV producers take note: these books, with their vividly realised settings, just beg to be dramatised’ — Scots Magazine

‘Intoxicating mix of dramatic crime and repressed passion’ — New Books

1582, St Andrews. In the swell of a storm, a battered ship is wrecked in St Andrews harbour. Aboard is a young Flemish sailor — the only survivor. The cargo of the ship appears a welcome windfall but it soon brings devastation to the town as petty squabbling turns to hysteria and tragedy. Hew traces the ship to its source in Ghent, where he uncovers a strange secret. Unwilling to allow the law to take its course, he returns once more to the role of advocate and finds his deepest principles being tested to the core.
