"This latest from Scottish author Morag Joss is as much an exploration of family - the ties that bind, and also suffocate - as it is a novel of suspense. Deborah and Howard Morgan, who live in the Scottish countryside, are forced to take in lodgers to make ends meet. Their property and their sheep suffer as they age, and their relationship - never particularly loving - is strained even more after Howard suffers a stroke. Their son would prefer never to return. And when a visitor who cannot pay his bill continues to stay with them, his presence upends their fragile stability and forces a confrontation with secrets long buried."
