Published in August 2018, this is the story of John Lacroix, cavalry officer, musician and fugitive. Set during the Spring and Summer of 1809 and shifting from Somerset to the Outer Hebrides, we follow the disgraced Lecroix in his attempt to recover peace of mind in a place he will not be known. We also follow his pursuers, two men charged with a secret mission to find Lacroix and deliver summary justice. But what if the men who pursue have more blood on their hands than the one they are hunting?
'In his luminous prose...Andrew Miller conjures up three very different men, but their experiences have all been traumatising. Manhunt and pilgrimage, the tale unfolds into a gripping and, ultimately, surprising exploration of the inner battleground.'
Elizabeth Buchan in the Daily Mail
