This novel is a masterpiece and something of an enigma. Part ghost story, part detective story and part something else entirely...
It's 1945 and Martin Heath, like many men at that time, is struggling to settle, to find his place again after the horrors of the war. Then an old comrade sends him a letter and tells him of a position that’s just come up in the remote wilds of Dartmoor - working for an elderly fellow called Mr Godley.
‘Are you a good driver, Mr Heath?’
It’s a simple question and a simple task and the doorway to a dark mystery that may just turn out to be the escape he was hoping for - but at what cost?
