At the heart of this extraordinary novel lies the fictional village of Ulverton on the Wessex Downs of England: the fixed point in the book's 300-year cycle of history, both its backdrop and its central character. A dozen accounts, narrated by a dozen different voices, tell the story of Ulverton through the generations: a soldier in Cromwell's army returns to find his wife remarried, and promptly vanishes; an eighteenth-century farmer introduces scientific planting methods and carries on an affair with a maid under his wife's nose; during a 1980s TV documentary, real estate developers discover a soldier's skeleton, dated to the time of Cromwell

After flying passengers, Bob Winrush then worked as a 'freight dog', flying consignments of goods, sometimes people, all over the world - including bush-strips in war zones. But he walked away from a deal that didn't smell right - something a freight dog should never do. Now a pilot for an Emirate prince in Dubai, that refusal is catching up with him. A marked man, he flees to a remote Scottish island. Pursued by armed assassins, he struggles to re-fashion himself in this barren, beautiful place, taking on another identity. But the stakes are rising, despite the presence of Judith, the alluring environmentalist; memories of his uglier flights haunt him. Even in the furthest Hebrides his past is with him...and the predators are closing in
