1468. A young priest, Christopher Fairfax, arrives in a remote Exmoor village to conduct the funeral of his predecessor. The land around is strewn with ancient artefacts - coins, fragments of glass, human bones - which the old parson used to collect.
Did his obsession with the past lead to his death?As Fairfax is drawn more deeply into the isolated community, everything he believes - about himself, his faith and the history of his world - is tested to destruction.

1949, Poca City – Aloysius Archer arrives in the dusty southern town with nothing but a handful of dollars and the clothes he stands in. Fresh from the battlefields of Italy, via prison for a crime he did not commit, he is hoping to build a peaceful life for himself. But peace and prosperity are hard to come by in a drought ravaged town carrying more than its fair share of secrets.
Before he knows it, Archer finds himself in the middle of a feud between two powerful local families. When blood is spilt on both sides, Archer is forced to turn sleuth not only to find the truth, but also to clear his own name.
