A traumatised soldier in search of peace, a nail-biting hunt to the death - the rapturously acclaimed eighth novel from the author of Pure

When Captain John Lacroix returns to England after fighting Napoleon's forces in Spain, he is not the man he was. A survivor of the British arm's infamous retreat to Corunna, he carries with him a shameful secret, one he will travel to the outer reaches of Scotland to forget.

Lacroix's journey to the Hebrides leads to encounters with thieves and free thinkers, to unexpected friendships, even love. But as the short northern summer reaches its zenith, the shadow of the enemy is creeping closer - unbeknownst to Lacroix, a vicious English corporal and a Spanish officer are on his trail. Freedom, for John Lacroix, will come at a high price.
