A haunting thriller about fathers, daughters and the ghosts of the past.

Jim is a brilliant raconteur whose stories get taller with each glass of whisky. His daughter Sam thinks it’s time she found out the truth about her dad.
On holiday in Orkney, Sam spies on Jim as he travels across the island. What has  he hidden in the abandoned  watchtower? Who is he meeting in the stone circle at dusk? And why is he so suddenly obsessed with Norse myths?
As Sam is drawn into Jim’s shadowy world, she begins to realise that pursuing the truth is not as simple as it seems.
Set against the harsh beauty of the remote Scottish islands of Orkney, inspired by the author’s own childhood, this is a gripping first novel from an astonishing new talent.
