WINNER OF THE DESMOND ELLIOTT PRIZE 2019
LONGLISTED FOR THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FIRST BOOK AWARD

‘So hard to put down.’ Daily Mail

‘Startling . . . Remarkable.’ Economist

‘Right away I was utterly absorbed.’ Sarah Jessica Parker

One father. Two sons. An impossible choice.

When thirteen-year-old Paul doesn't return home one afternoon, even his twin brother, Peter, doesn't know where he is. So their father, Clyde, must set out into the dark Trinidadian bush with a torch, to search for him on foot. And when the reasons for Paul's disappearance become clear, Clyde will be faced with a terrible decision. How does a father choose between his children? How does he weigh up what each one is worth? Which one is the golden child?
