The first novel by bestselling author James Bradley, author of The Resurrectionist.

Archaeologist David Norfolk is searching for a 400-year old Portuguese shipwreck off the coast of New South Wales. Such a find would rewrite the history of Australia. But instead he unearths the body of a man murdered fifty years earlier, and begins to unravel a more personal kind of history. 

An elderly recluse, dying in a nearby shack, seems to know something of the corpse’s identity - and also its connection to the shipwreck. He begins telling David about his own past, a story of a life marred by ambition, sexual passion, rivalry, deceit and betrayal. But will he give David the information he needs before it is too late?
