When twenty-year-old Lenny Barnes, paralyzed in a rugby accident, commits suicide in the presence of Barnaby Johnson, the much-loved priest of a West Cornwall parish, the tragedy’s reverberations open up the fault lines between Barnaby and his nearest and dearest. The personal stories of his wife, children, and lover illuminate the gulfs of unspoken sadness that separate them all. Across this web of relations scuttles Barnaby’s repellent nemesis—a man as wicked as his prey is virtuous.
