Ben Makepeace, a screenwriter, is recently divorced with a young son to care for. When he's invited up to Stoneham Park in Oxfordshire to meet someone who wants to bankroll his latest script, he jumps at the chance. Victor Sheldon is a hedge fund billionaire - and turns out to be someone Ben last knew some twenty-five years ago at school. But history can cast a long shadow, and soon Ben finds himself caught up in a vicious endgame with roots buried deep in the past of his childhood.
Mark Mills has lived in both Italy and France, and has written for the screen. He lives in Oxfordshire with his wife and two children.
