From the publisher

The early train brings Peplow, intent on avenging his young son’s death, to Great Minden on the day of the annual fair.  Newcomer and residents alike each have their own agenda and hidden lives.  As they entwine within this wry, vivid novel the role of revenge becomes darkly comic and moves like a thriller to its startling climax.

“By mingling knockabout comedy and high seriousness Carr achieves a rare honesty, a kind of soured sweetness found in the work of no other contemporary writer”   D.J.Taylor
